The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 386
Winbind name lookup fails

Here are the good news:
winbindd doesn't crash anymore if german characters like öäü are used in user or
The bad news:
The lookup of user or group names containing these characters fails.
Trying "wbinfo -n DOMAIN\Domänen-Admins" creates the following entry in log.winbind:
[2003/09/02 10:37:51, 0] rpc_client/cli_pipe.c:rpc_api_pipe(419)
cli_pipe: return critical error. Error was Call timed out: server did not resp
ond after 10000 milliseconds
Asking for users/groups without these characters works without problems.
Samba is set up as an additional server in an exsting NT4-Domain.
security = domain
password server = *
Many lookups fail because of the german standard groups
Everyone with one of these as the primary group has problems accessing shares.
E.g. opening a shared printer takes 10 seconds (timeout of rpc-call) and no
print jobs are displayed.
With rc3 "wbinfo -n DOMAIN\\Domänen-Admins" just returns
'Could not lookup name DOMAIN\Domänen-Admins'
No additional log entries.
Lookup on names without öäü works still without problems.

I'll have to change the winbindd protocol to include
a locale specifier in the packet format.
reseting target milestone. 3.0.1 has been frozen. WIll have to
This has been fixed a long time ago, right?
Guenther, I do not this this is fixed yet.
