a) you have joind the domain corrently.
wbinfo -t should help there
b) you have something like:
winbind cache time = 10
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template shell = /bin/bash
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
c) you have tha appropriate domain setting in smb.conf
d) your winbindd is running
e) you have something like:
passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind
e) /lib/libnss_winbind.so exists
g) /lib/libnss_winbind.so.2 is a symlink to /lib/libnss_winbind.so
Assuming all that is correct you definatly should be able to see
domain users with: wbinfo -u
domain groups with: wbinfo -g
you should be able to "finger DOMAIN\\User" and get info.
If you are still having problems the start a new thread and detail exactly
what is and isn't working.
