Description Stephan Borg 2002-10-24 08:05:22 EDT
Description of Problem:
I installed samba-common and samba-client RPM packages for Winbind
authentication only. After configuring the system-auth file appropriately, I
still could not log on until I created /var/log/samba and /var/run/samba
directories. I assume that these are only created in the samba-server RPM and
should probably be moved to the samba-common RPM.

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

How Reproducible:
Without directories, log and pid files won't create and therefore not start the
winbind service.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify nsswitch.conf, system-auth and smb.conf to use Winbind.
2. /etc/init.d/winbind start - will not start until directories are created.
3. wbinfo -u - should list domain users

Actual Results:
/var/log/messages shows 'Couldn not open logfile: /var/log/samba/log.winbindd'
wbinfo gives 'Error looking up domain users'

Expected Results:
No error messages in /var/log/messages
wbinfo -u - list domain users
