Samba 3 Problem with NT Users

I have installed Fedora RC2 with all of the updates and Samba Version 3.0.6-2.fc2.  Below is a copy of my smb.conf file.  I was able to add the computer to the domain with out problem.  When I issue a wbinfo -u or -g I get all of the expected output.  The strange thing is when I try to use getent passwd some users(NT Users) get the expected output other users do not get anything returned.  For the users that I do get information back with using the wbinfo I am able to chown files/directories to their user name and NT user groups and they show up properly when browsing the "Network".  Hope someone can shed some light on this for me.

Thanks

Is there any firewall setting in the NT client which disable the connection from your samba to NT clients? or have you try to disable the NT client firewall and set to accept the samba connection?
