samba member server as fileserver authenticating samba PDC


I'm stuck with a samba configuration and hope someone can help me with this.
I've read the samba docs on, but still I can't manage to get it to work.

What I have and what I want:
I've installed a Samba PDC without LDAP. This server is working fine.
Now I want to add a BDC with samba wich will act as a fileserver and have to authenticate to the samba PDC. This means that I can chown a file or folder on the fileserver with the credentials from the PDC.

All is running on Suse10 and Samba3.
The becoming BDC joined the domain.
On the becoming BDC (Fileserver) I have installed winbind and this is also running. I can do wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g. The users and groups are listed. (DOMAIN+user, DOMAIN+group)

If I want to chown a file or folder like this: chown DOMAIN+user:root test. Samba says that the user is invalid.

i didn't installed NSS, because this is for LDAP.

Does somebody has an idea what i'm missing?
