I think I did that years ago ;-)  ... but the links were missing again,
thanks for the reminder.

Created them, and restarted samba-ad-dc.service but so far the output of
smbstatus still displays IDs:

# smbstatus

Samba version 4.10.15-Debian
PID     Username     Group        Machine
    Protocol Version  Encryption           Signing
16148   3000032      3000022
(ipv4: SMB3_11           -



The wiki says "If you compiled Samba, add symbolic links from the
libnss_winbind library to the operating system's library path. For
details, see libnss_winbind Links. If you used packages to install
Samba, the link is usually created automatically."

If I use Louis's repo ... the links aren't created ... ?


thanks, regards
