Bug Description

Install (Samba server) in Ubuntu Server amd64 in Xenial Daily
Ubuntu Server 16.04 Xenial Final ISO 20160420
Samba Version 4.3.8-Ubuntu
Step number 28. Verify your userId is defined:
net usersidlist
has to return a line similar to UBUNTU\'your userId'. Other lines will also be shown.

The result from net usersidlist:
Could not get the users/sid list

I found this web page:
https://<email address hidden>/msg1412705.html

$ sudo net usersidlist -d2
added interface bond0 ip=X.X.X.X bcast=X.X.X.255 netmask=
Could not malloc sid array
Could not get the user/sid list
return code = -1

Using the above command the same results are in Ubuntu 16.04 samba server

Indeed, I only got that to work after I joined a domain. Interestingly it then also lists the local users.

I don't quite remember if winbind would list the local users in the standalone server case. I'll try another samba version.

With precise's samba 3.6.x I could get it to work. Any other 4.5 or older that I tried didn't work.

The test case this bug is based on I think is very old and step 28 should be removed. I can't see why winbind would be used in such a case where you are not a member of a domain, but feel free to enlighten me :)

If we want to quickly check winbind, here are some alternatives that we could use:

ubuntu@trusty-samba-usersidlist:~$ wbinfo -p
Ping to winbindd succeeded

ubuntu@trusty-samba-usersidlist:~$ wbinfo --all-domains

I think we should be ok with the new test case.
