Any Samba gurus here?

I have a file server running samba34-3.4.14 as a domain member server
with security = domain. winbindd is not started and all Windows users
are resolved to Unix uids/gids via getpwnam() as described in

Now I need to start winbindd for other purposes, not connected with
smbd and the file service. How do I configure smb.conf so that smbd
should not consult winbind and should continue using getpwnam() for Windows
logon name -> Unix uid/gid mapping? In other words, how do I disable the
idmap functionality and use existing Unix uids/gids with winbindd

TIA for any input.
