Hi samba mailing list.
I am having a major problem with winbind. This is my first implementation
and I have exhausted samba documentation, google and newsgroup searches.
Please help if you can.
I am running samba 2.2.8a under Solaris 8 SPARC.
Source was compiled using gcc with winbind pam builtin-popot and challenge
I am only using samba for the winbind portion at this time.
various smb.conf settings
workgroup = SEALCORP
server string = peruxbu1
security = domain
wins server =
dns proxy = no
password server = pernt2 pernt1 pernt5
encrypt passwords = yes
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
template homedir = /export/home/%D/%U
template shell = /usr/bin/bash
winbind separator = +
winbind enum groups = no
winbind enum groups = no
winbind cache time = 15
winbind use default domain = yes
name resolve order = hosts lmhosts wins bcast
winbind seems to be running correctly
wbinfo -t
Secret is good
Under NT, all users have a primary group of "Domain Users"
If I run getent passwd I see what appears to be all the users. A sample
appears below
YeoT:x:10925:10000:Trent Yeo:/export/home/SEALCORP/yeot:/usr/bin/bash
YongA:x:10926:10000:Amy Yong:/export/home/SEALCORP/yonga:/usr/bin/bash
YorgT:x:10927:10000:Tony Yorg:/export/home/SEALCORP/yorgt:/usr/bin/bash
YorkR:x:10928:10000:Rowena York:/export/home/SEALCORP/yorkr:/usr/bin/bash
A getent group takes forever to return 
A getent group | grep Domain returns the following:
Domain Admins:x:10206:<removed admin account names from email>
Domain Guests:x:10207:Guest
A wbinfo -g | grep Domain returns the following:
Domain Admins
Domain Guests
Domain Users
Anyone know why I would be losing the last group when using getent?
Also, why would a getent group take forever to return (like a minute).
Time wbinfo -g | wc -l
Returns a count of 456 lines and takes .068ms to return
Time getent group | wc -l
Returns a count of 229 lines and takes 1m34.501s to return
I am running winbindd with -I -d4 to see debug information for the above and
all I get from the last command is:
[ 1101]: getpwnam yeot
[ 1605]: setgrent
[ 1605]: getgrent
[ 1605]: endgrent
