Description Torsten Martinsen 2004-05-11 01:55:14 UTC
I have my system set up to authenticate via AD through Winbind. All works fine - 
e.g. I can do

   chgrp "Domain Users" *

But this does not work for all groups:

   linux1:/cvs/ghjur# chgrp -R jura *
   chgrp: invalid group name `jura'

although the group does exist:

   wbinfo -g
   Domain Admins
   Domain Users
   Domain Guests

I've set the winbindd log level to 100 and attached the log after doing the 
above chgrp.

Comment 2 Torsten Martinsen 2004-07-28 06:41:32 UTC

Retested with Samba+Winbind 3.0.5-Debian.

wbinfo -g shows the group 'jura'.

wbinfo -n jura gives "S-1-5-21-3719441955-1042781662-2750059285-1814 Local Group 

Running wbinfo -Y with this SID gives the gid 10025, which corresponds nicely 
with the group info resulting from running "wbinfo -r" with a user belonging to 
the group.

But still, no luck:

chgrp -R jura jura_com/
chgrp: invalid group name `jura'

I realy don't know how to proceed - can anyone take a look at the attached 
winbind log and give me some suggestions?

please retest against 3.0.11 and reopen if the bug still exists.  Thanks.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
