NAME

       wbinfo - Query information from winbind daemon


SYNOPSIS

       wbinfo [-a user%password] [-c username] [-C groupname]
              [--domain domain] [-I ip] [-s sid] [-u] [-U uid] [-g]
              [--get-auth-user] [-G gid] [-m] [-n name] [-N netbios-name]
              [-o user:group] [-O user:group] [-p] [-r user]
              [--set-auth-user user%password] [--sequence] [-S sid] [-t]
              [-x username] [-X groupname] [-Y sid]



DESCRIPTION

       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.


       The wbinfo program queries and returns information created and used  by
       the winbindd(8) daemon.


       The  winbindd(8)  daemon  must be configured and running for the wbinfo
       program to be able to return information.



OPTIONS

       -a username%password
              Attempt to authenticate a user via winbindd.  This  checks  both
              authenticaion methods and reports its results.


              Note

              Do  not  be tempted to use this functionality for authentication
              in third-party applications. Instead use ntlm_auth(1).



       -c user
              Create a local winbind user.


       -C group
              Create a local winbindd group.


       --domain name
              This parameter sets the domain on which any specified operations
              will  performed. If special domain name ’.’ is used to represent
              the current domain to which  winbindd  belongs.  Currently  only
              the--sequence,-u, and -g options honor this parameter.


       -g     This option will list all groups available in the Windows NT do-
              main for which the samba(7) daemon is operating  in.  Groups  in
              all  trusted  domains will also be listed. Note that this opera-
              tion does not assign group ids to any groups that have  not  al-
              ready been seen by winbindd(8).


       --get-auth-user
              Print username and password used by winbindd during session set-
              up to a domain controller. Username and password can be set  us-
              ing ’-A’. Only available for root.


       -G gid Try  to  convert a UNIX group id to a Windows NT SID. If the gid
              specified does not refer to one within the idmap gid range  then
              the operation will fail.


       -I ip  The  -I option queries winbindd(8) to send a node status request
              to get the NetBIOS name associated with the IP address specified
              by the ip parameter.


       -m     Produce  a list of domains trusted by the Windows NT server win-
              bindd(8) contacts when resolving names. This list does  not  in-
              clude  the Windows NT domain the server is a Primary Domain Con-
              troller for.


       -n name
              The -n option queries winbindd(8) for the  SID  associated  with
              the name specified. Domain names can be specified before the us-
              er name by using the winbind separator  character.  For  example
              CWDOM1/Administrator refers to the Administrator user in the do-
              main CWDOM1. If no domain is specified then the domain  used  is
              the one specified in the smb.conf(5)workgroup  parameter.


       -N name
              The  -N  option queries winbindd(8) to query the WINS server for
              the IP address associated with the NetBIOS name specified by the
              name parameter.


       -o user:group
              Add  a  winbindd local group as a secondary group for the speci-
              fied winbindd local user.


       -O user:group
              Remove a winbindd local group as a secondary group for the spec-
              ified winbindd local user.


       -p     Check  whether  winbindd is still alive. Prints out either ’suc-
              ceeded’ or ’failed’.


       -r username
              Try to obtain the list of UNIX group ids to which the  user  be-
              longs. This only works for users defined on a Domain Controller.


       -s sid Use -s to resolve a SID to a name. This is the inverse of the -n
              option  above.  SIDs  must  be specified as ASCII strings in the
              traditional      Microsoft      format.       For       example,
              S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.


       --set-auth-user username%password
              Store username and password used by winbindd during session set-
              up to a domain controller. This enables winbindd to operate in a
              Windows  2000  domain  with Restrict Anonymous turned on (a.k.a.
              Permissions compatiable with Windows 2000 servers only).


       --sequence
              Show sequence numbers of all known domains


       -S sid Convert a SID to a UNIX user id. If the SID does not  correspond
              to  a  UNIX  user  mapped by winbindd(8) then the operation will
              fail.


       -t     Verify that the workstation trust account created when the Samba
              server is added to the Windows NT domain is working.


       -u     This  option will list all users available in the Windows NT do-
              main for which the winbindd(8) daemon is operating in. Users  in
              all  trusted  domains will also be listed. Note that this opera-
              tion does not assign user ids to any users that have not already
              been seen by winbindd(8) .


       -U uid Try  to  convert  a UNIX user id to a Windows NT SID. If the uid
              specified does not refer to one within the idmap uid range  then
              the operation will fail.


       -x user
              Delete an existing local winbind user.


       -X group
              Delete an existing local winbindd group.


       -Y sid Convert a SID to a UNIX group id. If the SID does not correspond
              to a UNIX group mapped by winbindd(8) then  the  operation  will
              fail.


       -V     Prints the program version number.


       -h|--help
              Print a summary of command line options.



EXIT STATUS

       The  wbinfo  program  returns 0 if the operation succeeded, or 1 if the
       operation failed. If the winbindd(8) daemon is not working wbinfo  will
       always return failure.



VERSION

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.

       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by An-
       drew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the  Samba  Team  as  an  Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.


       wbinfo and winbindd were written by Tim Potter.


       The  conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The
       conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for  Samba  3.0  was  done  by  Alexander
       Bokovoy.
