Firstly, no you definitely don't need to setup LDAP native client in Solaris, SAMBA/winbind does all the LDAP reads for Solaris and Solaris talks direct to winbind. I've had this work with solaris 8 now, have you verified that the idmap data is written into the idmap ou specified in smb.conf (probably not necessary for winbind authentication but since you raised the question)? Most important have you updated the pam.conf as detailed in SAMBA-HowTo-collection guide (more or less accurate for Solaris 9)? Does getent list your AD domain users? this needs to work for winbind authentication,

	thanks Andy.

Just a quick question, it may sound a bit stupid but I just want to make

I have a Solaris 9 machine running winbind, the backend is an OpenLDAP
database running on a RedHat 9 machine.

My question is, apart from the 'smbpasswd -w' command and the obvious stuff
in smb.conf, do I have to set up the LDAP client on Solaris for Samba to be
able to put new mappings into the LDAP database?

The reason I ask is because everything seems to work (ntlm_auth, wbinfo,
getent) except logins (via telnet, etc), I'm stuck for ideas.

The next thing I will try is recompiling with a different version of gcc and
maybe try 3.0.2 instead.
