Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214683
enabling winbind should NOT add entrires to everything in /etc/nsswitch.conf
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
Enabling winbind will cause a "winbind" source to be added to, among other
things, the automount line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. This causes problems, since
autofs doesn't actually support winbind.
Additionally, nss_winbind doesn't support anything other than user and group
lookup, so it really doesn't make sense to add winbind to lines other than those.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enabled winbind in authconfig
2. Check /etc/nsswitch.conf
winbind is enabled for more than just user/group
winbind should only be enabled for user/group
This is likely also a bug in the devel branch and the RHEL 5 branch.
authconfig-5.3.12-1.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
