Heads up....

If anyone has had problems with winbindd not being able
to locate any domain controllers after upgrading to 3.0.11
*and* you have 'disable netbios = yes' in smb.conf, please
test this preliminary patch (winbind_find_dc.patch).  It's
pretty rough currently but needs some more widespread
testing.  You can download it from :


If anyone would care to test it out on other winbindd
installations, that would be great.  But this is just a
patch in progress.  Please don't install it on production
servers (unless you are already in a lot of pain from the
original bug).

Note that if smbd -b | grep WITH_ADS doesn't return
anything, don't install this patch as I haven't put
in the proper ifdef's to compile on systems without
kerberos and ldap packages.

If you do have trouble with winbindd after installing the
patch, please just email me directly with a short description
and the details of your smb.conf.   Thanks.

cheers, jerry
