Re: [Samba] Windows pre-requisites for login with winbind?




I've just observed a bizarre clue:-

# su - newuser
No passwd entry for user 'newuser'

# wbinfo --user-groups newuser
72471
19108
72307
72516
19326
--- SNIP ---
#

So, it can see the groups that user is a member of, but it cannot see a "passwd entry", whatever that means in the context of winbind!
