Hi all

So in my case where i have 2 domain member servers to a PDC .
i have already setup PDC in which winbind id map is set in ldap, but i am
not sure
how to make it work, now that already i have setup, domain member servers,
to a PDC,
enabling winbind will disturb my existing setup,
on PDC , winbind is not running but on domain member servers winbind is

i use domain member servers as file servers , which are mapped to windows
clients (through logon
script). i have already created users and groups on PDC and setup
permissions on file servers .
on Domain member server i have configured ldap.conf and subsequently
modified nsswitch.conf so i have setup permissions as below

setfacl -m u:username:rwx <directroy/file>

and not as setfacl -m u:mydomain\username:rwx <directory/file>

so now if i enable winbind(on server) , will the current permissions change
?. I don't want to disturb my current setup.
is it possible ?
