Sun Cluster Data Service for Samba Guide for Solaris OS

Operations of the winbind probe

Note –

The winbindd daemon resolves user and group information as a service to the Name Service Switch. When running winbindd the Name Service Cache daemon must be turned off. To disable this refer to Step 4 in How to Prepare Samba for Sun Cluster HA for Samba.

The winbind fault monitor periodically checks that the fault monitor user can be retrieved by using getent passwd samba-fault-monitor-user.
