Description Rickard 2008-04-09 18:26:34 UTC
Everything with my AD is set up OK, login via ntlm_auth works fine, nsswitch.conf:

passwd:         winbind compat
group:          winbind compat
shadow:         winbind compat

I've tried to configure pam with both pam_unix and pam_winbind sufficient and with only pam_winbind required with the same result. wbinfo -u and -g shows me the AD users and groups, the only strange thing is that it's not shown as DOMAIN\user, the output only says the username/group. 

My AD is running on windows 2008 server in 2003 compability mode and I've tried both Vista and XP as client.

When i try to log in with an AD user log.wb-DOMAINABC gets this error message:

[2008/04/10 01:22:35, 3] nsswitch/winbindd_pam.c:winbindd_dual_pam_auth_crap(1751)
  [ 5358]: pam auth crap domain: DOMAINABC user: userxyz
[2008/04/10 01:22:35, 2] nsswitch/winbindd_pam.c:winbindd_dual_pam_auth_crap(1927)
  NTLM CRAP authentication for user [DOMAINABC]\[userxyz] returned NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD (PAM: 4)
Comment 1 Rickard 2008-04-15 13:52:48 UTC
After playing around a bit more with another linux server and windows 2008 with ad in 2003 compability mode I discovered that getent passwd doesn't reveal any users when /etc/nsswitch.conf is set to winbind only. Running strace gives me this error:

getpid()                                = 5640
lstat64("/tmp/.winbindd", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0

close(3)                                = 0

/tmp/.winbindd/pipe exists and tailing it says:

# tail -f /tmp/.winbindd/pipe
tail: cannot open `/tmp/.winbindd/pipe' for reading: No such device or address
Comment 2 Björn Jacke 2022-03-14 15:01:10 UTC
current versions do not return NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD for each login. Also from comment #2 - a nsswitch with winbind only is not valid. I'm closing this bug as worksforme.
