[Samba] winbind/wbinfo not pulling info from W2K AD PDC

I've had a further look at this now and a hunt through some mail lists and I think it must have something to do with the windbind pipe in /tmp/.windbind/pipe. From what I understand it's the pipe that passes the windbind info onto other processes - although I may be wrong?

Looking at my setup the pipe file isn't being created when starting winbind and after a full reboot and starting winbind it doesn't get created.

Does anyone know why the pipe file isn't being created or a way to force the creation of the file??

I've checked permissions for the /tmp/.winbind directory and they're 755 and root:root.


Thanks again.
