I had posted in the technical list about this sometime back. However, I 
don't think anything was available at that time, so I went ahead and wrote 
a small patch that allows multiple winbindd process to run at the same 
time :) . What it does is to create a seperate pipe for each winbindd 
process. However, this would need a patch for the nss library as well and 
I've only worked out a patch for the linux nss library. I'd also added a 
couple of extra parameters to the smb.conf file that allowed for 
specification of a list of domains that could be veto-ed or allowed. I 
could send you the patch if you're interested.

My problem is that I'd like to have one GNU/Linux box with Samba installed 

serve multiple domains.

I have 2 Domains separated from each other. Connected Samba box to both 
domains and joined them successfully. Running 2 smbd and 2 nmbd processes 
bound to the appropreate network interface, with different settings 
appropreate domans.

Samba server is visible in both networks but here is the problem. I can 
2 winbindd processes for each domain controller, but only one is actually 
working. So only users from that one are able to authenticate. Using 
showed that both winbindd processes are connected to the pipe, but only 
last one started is actually listening to requests?

The question is, what do I need to do to make 2 winbindd processes work 
simultaneously? Is there a solution available, or I will need to write a 
patch for winbind?
