Samba 3.6.22 on AIX 7.1 with Windows AD (Kerberos and winbind)

Hi all,

I have installed samba 3.6.22 on AIX 7.1 and join a windows AD with success.

All seem to work fine, I have configured smb.conf, methods.cfg, kerberos, user .... the following command work fine wbinfo -u, wbinfo -g, wbinfo -i, wbinfo -s, wbinfo -S, lsuser, id...

The unique issue i have is that le file.txt (see below) don't display owner and group.
 -rw-r--r--    1 10042    10010             7 Jun 26 08:50 file.txt

Can anyone help me ?

Thank in advance.

Hi Philippe,

Are the UID and GID's owned by a user or group locally on the system?

The UID and GID's are not owned by a user or group locally on the system, the UID and GID are only on my AD.

Thanks for the info!

Where did you get the file /usr/lib/security/WINBIND from? I have installed Sambra from and I cannot find it anywhere.

How did you install Samba?
