            Bug ID: 262339
           Summary: pw useradd fails when winbindd is active
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: tictactux@gmail.com

Scenario: create a new local user

~ $ sudo pw useradd testuser
pw: gid '19108' has already been allocated

An uid and gid must be explicitly set, only then pw useradd would succeed.

samba and winbindd are running, and winbind is present in /etc/nsswitch.conf

After stopping samba, the user is successfully added to /etc/passwd with the
next-in-sequence uid.

stopping either samba or commenting out the "winbind" reference in
/etc/nsswitch.conf solves the issue.

Could it be possible duplicate or relative of bug 205019?

Best, Ben
