Description MarkS 2018-05-08 15:18:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Running RHEL Workstation 7.5, fully patched. Attempting to run "smbclient" tools fails as it cannot find one of its libraries.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
I did attempt to reinstall both packages to see if it was a broken install. I am unsure exactly when the break occurred as I do not regularly use smbclient.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/bin/smbclient

Actual results:
/usr/bin/smbclient: error while loading shared libraries: libwbclient.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected results:
Usage: smbclient [-?EgBVNkPeC] ....

Additional info:
It seems this is just a search path issue.

1. echo "/usr/lib64/samba/wbclient" >>/etc/ld.so.conf.d/samba-fix.conf
2. ldconfig
3. smbclient

Please check where the symlink ob libwbclient is pointing to:

krikkit:~ # ll /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 May  9 16:53 /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0 -> libwbclient.so.0.14                                                                                
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 May  9 16:53 /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0.14 -> /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64                                                        
krikkit:~ # ll /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 May  9 16:53 /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64 -> /usr/lib64/samba/wbclient/libwbclient.so.0.14

Make sure sssd-libwbclient is not installed and reinstall libwbclient, then the symlink should be setup correctly.

Many thanks for the quick response, you were correct to point to sssd-lbwbclient as my issue. I removed it and reinstalled libwbclient, after which everything is functional again.

# ls -l /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0* /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64 
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 45 May  9 16:27 /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64 -> /usr/lib64/samba/wbclient/libwbclient.so.0.14
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 19 May  9 16:27 /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0 -> libwbclient.so.0.14
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 40 May  9 16:27 /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0.14 -> /etc/alternatives/libwbclient.so.0.14-64

# alternatives --list | grep samba
libwbclient.so.0.14-64	auto	/usr/lib64/samba/wbclient/libwbclient.so.0.14
