[Samba] Winbind and nss-ldap

Hi Guys,

Have some issues with winbind and nss-ldap in LDAP based NT4 BDC/fileserver

The DC has the LDAP server role and the BDC connects to it for

smb.conf of the BDC

    netbios name = TRAC5
     local master = no
    domain master = no
    preferred master = no
    domain logons = no
 passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://trac15.ste.com
  ldap admin dn = cn=admin,dc=ste,d=com
  ldap suffix = dc=ste
  ldap group suffix = ou=groups
  ldap machine suffix = ou=computers
  ldap user suffix = ou=users
  idmap backend = ldap
  ldap idmap suffix = ou=idmap
  idmap config * : ldap_url = ldap://trac15.ste
  idmap config * : ldap_base_dn = ou=idmap,dc=ste,dc=com
  idmap config * : ldap_user_dn = cn=admin,dc=ste,dc=com
  ldap delete dn = no
  ldap ssl = start tls

We've setup libnss-ldap in the servers (both trac15 and trac5)

When we enable winbind service, we get the following error
 user 'asmith' (from session setup) not permitted to access this share
(dataldap). In the actual client when you open the share, it prompts for
the login creds again and again

When the winbind is disabled,
The user is able to login and access the shares. The issue seems to be with
the folder permissions. The /home drive is setup with 700 as the mask and
the folder permission in smb.conf. The user can create folders but not
rename them. They can create a text file but not rename them. It comes with
the You need permission from a the following user to make changes. The SID
presented is the SID of the user in LDAP

We have removed and added back the user in the /etc/passwd file in the
fileserver. If we remove it the getent passwd doesn't recoginse the user.
Our nsswitch.conf has files ldap

So basically at this stage we are disabling winbind to get LDAP working

Thank you,
