Fixed In Version: samba-4.2.2-1.el7
Doc Type: Rebase: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
Doc Text:
The samba packages have been upgraded to upstream version 4.2.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Most notably, the "wbinfo -u" and "wbinfo -g" commands now only enumerate the users in their own domain by default. To enumerate all users on all trusted domains, run the "wbinfo --domain='*' -u" or "wbinfo --domain='*' -g" command.

Description Sumit Bose 2015-02-25 11:22:44 UTC
Description of problem:
Besides the usual updates and improvements samba-4.2.x has improved support for SMB2 and SMB3 used by modern Windows versions.

Additionally 4.2.x is a requirement to be able to add features like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=910464 or trust to FreeIPA/IdM . Those features will not be available in 4.2.x but will require it.

Comment 2 Andreas Schneider 2015-08-19 12:09:33 UTC
There is a change in behaviour of the commands 'wbinfo -u' and 'wbinfo -g'. By default the enumerate all users on all trusted domains which can lead to out of memory condition on large installations. Therefore the default has been changed to enumerate only over the own domain (the domain winbind is joined too). We still support the old behaviour, you can enable it with:

wbinfo --domain='*' -u
