Fantastic work - thanks. My Suse 9.3 x64 now works with your RPMs!
I wonder if your expertise might help with my 'nemesis'. I have been
compiling Samba-3-14 and Samba-3.21 for the last couple of weeks and
have everything working nicely with the Samba commands but for the life
of me I cannot get nsswitch to be called when I use 'getent passwd' or
'getent passwd username'.
I compile with:
./configure --with-smbmount --enable-cups --with-ads
--with-shared-modules=idmap_rid --with-pam --with-pam_smbpass
I copy libnss_winbind.so to /lib and made a link to libnss_winbind.so.2
followed by 'ldconfig'.
My nsswitch.conf reads 'passwd: files winbind' and group: files
I join the domain and all the wbinfo commands (-t -u -g -a) work
perfectly and I watch the workings of winbind running in the foreground
as 'winbind -n -i -d 4'.
I have removed the nscd and libnscd RPMs from the system.
However as soon as I try 'getent passwd' or 'getent passwd nkelly' or
'getent group' I see no response from winbind whatsoever.
Clearly nsswitch is not finding or calling libnss_winbind.so - but I
cannot see why. An indentical server running 3.0.14a works better - it
responds to 'getent passwd nkelly' correctly but not to 'getent passwd'.
Any ideas would be much appreciated as atlhough it is nice to have your
RPMs, I would like to know where I went wrong.
