Then, as Linda pointed out, your machines are NOT in the domain, and
essentially can't be reliable operated inside domain environment.
You may try ls -ln to see if the ID's on these shares are unique enough to
warrant their addition to the /etc/passwd, but I really, really do not envy
you in that case. You may get readable names, but you will never be able to
identify one of these accounts as yourself.
