Description Mike Thomas 2004-06-28 08:10:37 UTC
The winbindd daemon does a static ldap query to retrieve accounts to be mapped
to the unix accounts by doing a objectClass=user query. It would be very nice to
be able to change this query to something along the lines of 
"(& (!(objectClass=computer)) (objectClass=user))" to filter out computers and
just have users. As I said, this is just an example, it would be neat however to
have some sort of option in the smb.conf to specify what filter is used to
retrieve accounts.

Thanks for making such a great product!

there are cases where you have to return computer accounts 
even if you don't want to.  The only enhancement request 
that I think is valid is probably the capability to define 
the search base (which we need to work on).  Thanks for 
the suggestion though.
