Fixed In Version: samba-3.6.8-139.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: A bug in winbind has been fixed which changed the behaviour of resolving groups. Consequence: A bugfix changed the behaviour of resolving domain local groups and winbind couldn't find them. Fix: We restored the original behaviour resolving the domain local groups of our own domain. Result: The id command resolves domain local groups of or own domain correctly again.

Description john 2012-10-15 10:06:01 UTC
Description of problem:
winbind doesn't return "Domain Local" groups from Windows 2008 Active Directory 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):3.5.10-114

How reproducible: Install and configure Samba 3.5.10-114 with idmap backend as  "AD"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and join the AD User to a  "Global group" and a "Domain Local group"
2. the "id <AD User>" command displays both Global group and Domain Local group membership
3. After successfull login of AD User to a RHEL system, logout the AD User
4. After approx 5 mins, the "id <AD User>" command displays only Global group membership.
Actual results: Installing and configuring Samba 3.5.18 resolves the issue.

Expected results: 

Additional info: Do we have any fixes from Red Hat to resolve this issue specific to Samba 3.5.10--14

This is https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9052 and has already been fixed for 6.4 due to the rebase.

The patch can be applied on 3.5.10 too.
