Hi Rowland,

can you explain what I should do, I think I didn't understand you, I'm sorried. Did you mean I should remove winbind from /etc/nsswitch.conf (and the symbolic links in /lib64) on my DC1 and DC2 ? I want to use DC1 and DC2 only for authentication, that was my intension. That's why I installed an extra samba4 host which should have the fileshare role. Please be patient with me. Thanks a lot.
