Can someone explain what libwbclient.so.0 does?
On Ubuntu 18.04, the libwbclient0 package is a dependency of cifs-utils
and anything winbind related. They also include a package called
libwbclient-ssd; the difference seems to most in the location of the
root at kraken:~# dpkg -L libwbclient0
root at roadrunner:~# dpkg -L libwbclient-sssd
Originally we thought our problems with sssd + Samba were related to
this library, but turns out this appears to be unrelated: I can mount
shares with either library installed (and haven't tried installing both
on the same machine.
This begs the question, what is this needed for and why is there a
separate (and apparently largely undocumented) version specific to sssd?
