Description Ian Page Hands 2009-05-22 16:35:39 EDT
Created attachment 345162 [details]
a simple check for nscd in the winbind init script

Description of problem:
According to "http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/winbind.html#id2650352" winbind should never be started when nscd is running. I believe the winbind service should refuse to start if nscd is running.

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

How reproducible:
service nscd start
service winbind start
Actual results:
winbind starts with nscd running

Expected results:
winbind should refuse to start

Additional info:
patch included
Comment 1 Simo Sorce 2009-05-26 16:03:41 EDT
This would be a bit too radical, while we discourage using winbind in conjunction with nscd we cannot prevent an admin that knows what he is doing from doing so.
