Introduction

If you compile Samba yourself, to enable hosts to receive user and group information from a domain using Winbind, you must create two symbolic links in a directory of the operating system's library path. If you are are using Samba packages from your distro, there are usually distro packages to do this for you e.g. libpam-winbind and libnss-winbind on Debian.



Determining the Platform

To determine the operating system's platform:

# uname -m



Locating the libnss_winbind.so.2 Library

The libnss_winbind.so.2 library is installed in the Samba library directory set at compile time. To locate the folder:

# smbd -b | grep LIBDIR
   LIBDIR: /usr/local/samba/lib/

Link the library from this directory in your operating system's library directory.
