samba-3.5.2 - "getent group" not returning any info
Last modified: 2014-07-24 21:38:54 UTC
I just installed 3.5.2 and encountered the following. Compile worked all
right but "getent group" would not give back any results, though "getent
passwd" did list those AD users. The server runs as AD member and
winbind seems to work normally. "wbinfo -u" and "wbinfo -g" return the
desired info just "getent group" sucks.
It works using the previous 3.3.8 version as well as with 3.4.7 using an
Created attachment 5628 [details]
Level 10 log.smb
Created attachment 5629 [details]
Level 10 log.winbindd
Same here with 3.5.4. Also %G is resolved to numeric IDs.
getent group GROUP works.
In my case it works if charget is UTF-8.
If it's something else then
wbinfo -g doesn't work.
getent groups doesn't work
wbinfo -g works.
getent groups still doesn't work
3.4.9 works fine.
haven't seen any setup since years where problems like this have been caused by samba itself. mostly it was a configiration problem, nscd not restarted or something like that. closing this old bug now. if u see issues with 4.1, feel free to reopen the bug with verbose description and config files.
