Description David Disseldorp 2012-11-07 13:27:15 UTC
I ran into this option on a customer system, the commit entry currently best documents it's usage:

    re-added "winbind:ignore domains" patch

    This option really is essential, as we discover again and again at
    customer sites. Due to bugs in winbind some domains are toxic. When
    you are installing at a site and a particular domain in a complex
    setup causes winbind to segfault or hang then you need a way to
    disable that domain and continue.
    In an ideal world winbind could handle arbitrarily complex ADS
    domains, but we are nowhere near that yet. If we ever get to that
    stage then we won't need this option.
