[Samba] Samba Winbind and LDAP backend

Thanks for clearing that up, I didn't think I needed to setup up the LDAP
client, everything I've done so far has indicated that winbind is putting
information into my idmap ou.  Yep, getent does work and I'm using a
pam.conf specifically for Solaris 9 that I've seen posted here on the
mailing list.  I've applied the Solaris patch that is mentioned in the HOWTO
also.  I've just compiled and tried out 3.0.2rc1 as well, I get the same
problem with that so I'm guessing the problem may not even lie with
samba/winbind.  I can't think what else it could be. 

I'll try compiling using a different compiler.

Oh, one other thing, I'm not using Active Directory, this is all on an old
NT4 domain.

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

	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.
