Hi folks
I'm currently experimenting with Samba 3.5.4 and I'm observing a rather odd issue.
Assume the following domain and user : MYDOM+MYUSER
wbinfo works fine
# wbinfo -n "MYDOM+MYUSER"
S-1-5-21-2009150308-1095399282-1287535205-5503 SID_USER (1)
However, id 'MYDOM+MYUSER' fails and winbind at debug level 10 shows the following info:
Could not convert sid S-1-5-21-2009150308-1095399282-1287535205-5503: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
Any idea how to debug this?
Met vriendelijke groet 
Best regards 
Bien à vous
