[Samba] winbind and Solaris 9 with AD

I wonder if that is my problem too?  How do you force it all to compile at
32 bit?

have resolved the problem as to why getent and samba authentication via
winbind were not working. It's really stupid - we were building 64 bit and
then copying the 64 bit winbind nss lib into /usr/lib - doh!. So getent ( 32
bit ) would try and load a 64 bit winbind nss lib which obviously could not
work , and it was failing silently. Recompiling 32 bit version of library
has done the trick and getent works ok and users do not need unix accounts
to access samba areas.

Will post full build procedure tomorrow and am now trying to get the logging
on to the Solaris 9 host using AD account details. Isn't working yet - have
redirected all auth.debug to a file and am getting the following:

Jan 22 22:02:18 ants725 pam_winbind[21561]: [ID 614614 auth.notice] user
'test7' granted acces Jan 22 22:02:18 ants725 login[21561]: [ID 468494
auth.crit] login account
failure: No account present for user

i.e. the pam authentication is working but then login doen't appear to be
able to find the user's account.

Anyway - will have a play and post back if I get any further.

thanks to everyone who replied to my post - sorry it was such an idiotic
problem in the end.
