winbindd: Domain password server not available.

Hi Jerry:

I got the 2_2 source and compiled on RH 7.0. Can't seem to get winbind
to work. I followed the sample in the winbindd man page, but couldn't
find the samedit program referenced in that document to add my samba box
to the domain. So I went ahead and used smbpasswd to sucessfully add
myself to the domain.

I changed my smb.conf to use DOMAIN, but when I try to browse from my
win client i am prompted for a username/password, its not accepting
anything i put in

Also I did not see my users increase as suggested in the man page to
include the domain users.

Any ideas?

You need SAMBA_2_2 to play with winbind.  SAMBA_TNG on
is outdated and no longer being development by Samba team members.
See for more information on the Samba TNG
