Hi Quinn,

I was following the doco at

There is no mention there of ldap/tls etc.

There doesn't seem to be a complete tutorial on setting up samba & AD on the
web..  Plenty of doco on it, but all different, and implemented in a
different way.

I'm running CentOS5, samba 3.0.33. Win 2003 R2.

nsswitch.conf :
passwd: files winbind
shadow: files winbind
group: files winbind
Could you explain the difference between wbinfo & getent?
