Hi List,

I want to use Active Directory for my samba users passwords and /etc/group for storing group membership.

/etc/nsswitch.conf looks like:

group: file

Problem: the tests i ran show that the samba server does not know about group membership  (deleting file from other user belonging to the same group fails). The same test works as expectet when winbindd is switched off. What do i have to do to fix this while having winbindd running?

Regards, Marius
