The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 516
wbinfo -t fails on Samba 3.0.0 stable
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:29:45 UTC
I upgraded a couple of systems to Samba 3.0.0 stable from rc4, and ran into the
following. Before the upgrade, I was able to check the secret as follows:
kehall@lnxsmb3t:/var/log> wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret via RPC calls succeeded
But after, I get this:
lnxsmb3t:/etc/logrotate.d # wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret via RPC calls failed
error code was (0x0)
Could not check secret
Winbindd also complains about the "realm" parm in smb.conf, but it appears it's
done this all along.
Are you sure you are running the correct version of winbindd?
What is the error message about the realm? Also, did you
install the new libnss_winbindd.so library with 3.0.0?
lnxsmb3t:~ # wbinfo -V
lnxsmb3t:/var/log # which wbinfo
lnxsmb3t:~ # winbindd -V
lnxsmb3t:~ # rpm -qf /usr/bin/wbinfo
(ps -l confirms winbindd loaded from /usr/sbin)
lnxsmb3t:~ # rpm -qf /usr/sbin/winbindd
lnxsmb3t:~ # rpm -qf /lib/libnss_winbind.so
This appeared after I upgraded from RC4 to stable. I noticed it after
rejoining the domain on another system that was upgraded from 2.2.8a to
3.0.0stable, so I tested it on this one, which has never had a previous release
I built the RPM myself using the same spec file I've used for the 3.0 beta and

I checked back in the log, and RC4 did the same thing I don't know about
previous versions. I've run a couple of the betas, and RC1, 3, and 4.
I just tried it again, and now it works. Maybe there was a delay while the
domain join propagated, and I was picking up a server that wasn't current.
Still getting the message about "realm" though.
If winbindd complains that "realm" is an unknown parameter, then
ADS support was not compiled in. The delay period before
wbinfo -t suceeds sounds like a name resolution issue where
winbindd is busying trying to contact trusted domains.
How did you join the domain? What type of domain is it (NT4 or AD)?
It's a Win2k AD.
I don't have "--with-ads" in the configure. configure --help says it defaults
to "auto". What's required to enable it, other than adding the parm to
I went back over my build, and it looks like I lost AD detection when I removed
MIT Kerberos and replaced heimdal. The configure option was still pointing to
the MIT directory. It's building now with "--with-ads" forced on. If this
goes successfully, I'll mark this resolved. I also got some email help from
Steve French. Thanks for the help.
Product built successfully, and no more errors are displayed. Thanks again.
