Why are you using a winbind backend that maps Unix users to domain

As for your problem, is winbind running ?

Yes, winbind is running.

Thanks for getting me to reconsider that 'rid' or 'ad' backends, but I don't think they work in my situation

I have been using the nss backend because:

- On the server that I am setting up Samba, I have existing Unix users with existing uids and associated data on the file server
- There is no usable uid information on the AD.
- I have no permissions to modify the AD to set up user information.

I understood that the nss backend was intended for this situation.

It worked on another server set up the same way but running Samba 4.4.4.
