in order to work around our problem with winbindd from samba-2.2.5 I tried the
following quick 'n dirty patch:
- install the file "baecker-quick-n-dirty-workaround.h" under directory
source/nsswitch of the samba tree (see attached file)
- include the following line into the file source/nsswitch/winbindd_cm.c:
at the beginning of the function "cm_get_dc_name" (directly before the
This does not really solve the problem; it only works around it. But now wbinfo
says: "secret is good".
You'd have to hardcode your PDC's name and IP into the file
"baecker-quick-n-dirty-workaround.h" above though.
