Hi Rowland,

Let me start my apologizing about the missed email, must have not seen it.

We are migrating to an AD domain , the first step was to migrate PDC to LDAP.

So to get around the bug, do we need to create the user in both PDC in LDAP and also as a local user in the member server with the same password? As the member server is set to look for files then winbind, this should work?

Hi, I take it you missed my post yesterday, where I agreed with you that
using winbind on a Unix domain member doesn't work for users.

You seem to have two options here, file a bug report about the problem
and then wait to see if it gets fixed, or do the sensible thing and
upgrade to an AD domain.
