Feature Request: optional filter string for winbind account retrieval.
Last modified: 2005-02-08 07:23:07 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
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.
