Description Paul Eggleton 2003-07-10 14:20:47 UTC
The supplied winbind.init file for Red Hat (in packaging/RedHat) looks 
for "winbind uid" instead of "idmap uid", so if you use the "idmap uid" option 
as you should, it won't start or stop winbind at all. (Presumably you would 
want to retain backwards compatibility if "winbind uid" is still to be allowed 
in the config file).

Reassigning to jht who seems to be handling the redhat packaging stuff.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-07-11 07:56:57 UTC
jht doesn't handle the RH packaging.  That would be me.
fixed by changing to 

if [ "`egrep -i '(idmap.*uid|winbind.*uid)' $CONFIG | egrep -v [\#\;]`" ]; then

originally reported against 3.0.0beta2.  CLeaning out 
non-production release versions.

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