Concerning your first question:
No, we are not running winbindd, so I cannot tell you if it might work.
To your second remark:
Well, it might be that it has worked in your case, but certainly not in
mine. I do not know what happened to the drivers or database of the drivers, but
something was really messed up. I like to clarify this and to put it on a
higher level. I like to figure out what the procedure is to follow and how
we can inform the users about this procedure.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
