Subject: [Samba] FC6 and winbind separator ignored?
I'm trying to join my FC6 box to our Active Directory domain. For the
part the setup was pretty straightforward, but it just doesn't seem like
winbind separator is being honored.
When I do a 'getent passwd' I get the following:
(The X's have been added to protect the innoccent :-)
# testparm -sv | grep 'winbind separator'
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_MEMBER
winbind separator = \
As you can see, my winbind separator is set to \. No, I do not have
running either, so no funky results are being cached. nsswitch.conf has
"files winbind" for passwd, shadow and group. winbindd is running
(as far as I can tell).
Here is my smb.conf file:
# General options
workgroup = AVWORLD
netbios name = LEORAY-FEDORA
realm = XXXX.COM
password server = cricket.XXXX.XXX
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
preferred master = no
#winbind separator = +
printcap name = cups
printing = cups
# winbind options
idmap uid = 10000-9999999999
idmap gid = 10000-9999999999
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
(winbind separator is commented so that the default of \ is used).
I have been able to do a kinit username at DOMAIN.COM and then a net ads
with no errors. klist shows my Kerberos ticket.
If I run a 'finger username' nothing is returned -- but if I run a
AVWORLD\\username' the entry _is_ returned.
Why isn't winbind making use of my winbind separator?
Oh yes, this is part of Samba 3.0.23c-2 (part of Fedora Core 6).
Thanks in advance!
