Sorry I don't formulate my question very well. Libnss-winbind is well
configured on my DC. But :

On some of my scripts I need to get the users "gidNumber" attribute
value. As on DC winbind always give "Domain Users" as gid I can't use
the "id" or "wbinfo' command to get the "gidNumber" attribute value.
So my question is : Is there a faster equivalent of this command :

ldbsearch -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb -b
a_base_dn_that_contain_all_my_users '(cn=myusername)' gidNumber | grep
gidNumber | sed 's/gidNumber: //'

Is there a samba command to get as fast as possible an user LDAP
attribute values ?
