Re: [Samba] winbind finds all domain users except Administrator




Okay, right.

Is there anything that the Samba admininistrator account can do that the
users in the group domain admins can't (other than direct configurations on
the samba server)?

Also on a kind of unrelated note: I have several Unix servers that used NIS
up until now to get the users. I would prefer if they could get the
username like right now, without the MYDOM\ prefix. Is it possible to
configure winbind to leave out the domain or strip it? Or could I have them
use LDAP to get the username from my DC without the domain? user map isn't
an option, as then they'd have to have the accounts locally as well and I'd
have to keep track of updates.

Thank you,
Fabian
