WBINFO(1)										WBINFO(1)

NAME
       wbinfo - Query information from winbind daemon

SYNOPSIS
       wbinfo  [  -u ]	[ -g ]	[ -h name ]  [ -i ip ]	[ -n name ]  [ -s sid ]  [ -U uid ]  [ -G
       gid ]  [ -S sid ]  [ -Y sid ]  [ -t ]  [ -m ]  [ -r user ]  [ -a  user%password	]   [  -A
       user%password ]

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

       The  wbinfo  program  queries and returns information created and used by the  winbindd(8)
       daemon.

       The winbindd(8) daemon must be configured and running for the wbinfo program to be able to
       return information.

OPTIONS
       -u     This  option  will  list all users available in the Windows NT domain for which the
	      winbindd(8) daemon is operating in. Users in  all  trusted  domains  will  also  be
	      listed.  Note  that  this operation does not assign user ids to any users that have
	      not already been seen by winbindd(8).

       -g     This option will list all groups available in the Windows NT domain for  which  the
	      winbindd(8)  daemon  is  operating  in.  Groups in all trusted domains will also be
	      listed. Note that this operation does not assign group ids to any groups that  have
	      not already been seen by winbindd(8).

       -h name
	      The -h option queries winbindd(8) to query the WINS server for the IP address asso-
	      ciated with the NetBIOS name specified by the name parameter.

       -i ip  The -i option queries winbindd(8) to send a node status request to get the  NetBIOS
	      name associated with the IP address specified by the ip parameter.

       -n name
	      The  -n  option queries winbindd(8) for the SID associated with the name specified.
	      Domain names can be specified before the user name by using the  winbind	separator
	      character.   For	example  CWDOM1/Administrator refers to the Administrator user in
	      the domain CWDOM1. If no domain is specified then the domain used is the one speci-
	      fied in the smb.conf workgroup parameter.

       -s sid Use -s to resolve a SID to a name. This is the inverse of the -n option above. SIDs
	      must be specified as ASCII strings in the traditional Microsoft format.  For  exam-
	      ple, S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.

       -U uid Try  to  convert	a UNIX user id to a Windows NT SID. If the uid specified does not
	      refer to one within the winbind uid range then the operation will fail.

       -G gid Try to convert a UNIX group id to a Windows NT SID. If the gid specified	does  not
	      refer to one within the winbind gid range then the operation will fail.

       -S sid Convert  a  SID  to  a  UNIX user id. If the SID does not correspond to a UNIX user
	      mapped by  winbindd(8) then the operation will fail.

       -Y sid Convert a SID to a UNIX group id. If the SID does not correspond to  a  UNIX  group
	      mapped by  winbindd(8) then the operation will fail.

       -t     Verify that the workstation trust account created when the Samba server is added to
	      the Windows NT domain is working.

       -m     Produce a list of domains trusted by the Windows	NT  server  winbindd(8)  contacts
	      when  resolving  names. This list does not include the Windows NT domain the server
	      is a Primary Domain Controller for.

       -r username
	      Try to obtain the list of UNIX group ids to which the user belongs. This only works
	      for users defined on a Domain Controller.

       -a username%password
	      Attempt  to authenticate a user via winbindd.  This checks both authenticaion meth-
	      ods and reports its results.

       -A username%password
	      Store username and password used by winbindd during session setup to a domain  con-
	      troller.	This  enables  winbindd to operate in a Windows 2000 domain with Restrict
	      Anonymous turned on (a.k.a.  Permissions	compatiable  with  Windows  2000  servers
	      only).

EXIT STATUS
       The  wbinfo program returns 0 if the operation succeeded, or 1 if the operation failed. If
       the winbindd(8) daemon is not working wbinfo will always return failure.

VERSION
       This man page is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba suite.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew  Tridgell.  Samba
       is  now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux
       kernel is developed.

       wbinfo and winbindd were written by Tim Potter.

       The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter
