I am trying to use the winbind functions of Samba on a 5.2-RELEASE =
system. I am able to enumerate users and groups per the documentation =
using wbinfo -u/-g, although while the examples show the output as being =
'DOMAIN+user' or 'DOMAIN+group' I do not see the 'DOMAIN' part.

I have copied the pam_winbind and nss_winbind modules to appropriate =
places and have confirmed that libnss_winbind is in the cache. I have =
nsswitch.conf edited properly. I have winbindd loaded, etc. however I am =
not able to assign permissions using domain accounts and I am not able =
to resolve domain password entries via pw.

I am trying to use this combination (FreeBSD/Samba) instead of Win2k =
Server for our file server needs, but I need to be able to set =
permissions for roaming user profiles and shared directories as we =
depend heavily on a terminal server/thin client environment.

Relevant portions of my smb.conf file:

netbios name =3D samba
workgroup =3D <NT_DOMAIN_NAME>
security =3D ADS
encrypt passwords =3D yes
password server =3D <dns name of a global catalog domain controller>
winbind separator =3D +
idmap uid =3D 10000-20000
idmap gid =3D 10000-20000
winbind enum users =3D yes
winbind enum groups =3D yes
winbind use default domain =3D yes
