Further to the above I found that WINBIND Daemon is necessary for this type
of operation as noted below in smb.conf file:
winbind nested groups (G)
If set to yes, this parameter activates the support for
nested groups. Nested groups are also
called local groups or aliases. They work like their counterparts
in Windows: Nested groups are
defined locally on any machine (they are shared between DC's
through their SAM) and can contain
users and global groups from any trusted SAM. To be able to use
nested groups, you need to run
Default: winbind nested groups = yes
I have not currently configured WINBIND Daemon.
I wanted to know whether the WINBIND Daemon is must for this type of
operation. Can any one help me in getting this clarified. If NO, what is the
steps required to do this?
Thanks in advance for any kind of information regarding this.
