get_dc_name() fails when using ads and no domain is specified
Last modified: 2010-09-25 10:07:22 UTC
get_dc_name() in source3/libsmb/namequery_dc.c fails when ads_dc_name() succeeds but no domain is specified in the original call to get_dc_name().
It appears that the point of get_dc_name() is to attempt to use ads if appropriate, and fall back on rpc if ads fails. However, if ads_dc_name() succeeds get_dc_name() still returns false if the pass-in domain is NULL. This affects the ability of winbindd/idmap_adex to look up information, and probably affects other areas of the system as well.
