wbinfo - Unix, Linux Command
wbinfo - Query information from winbind daemon
wbinfo [-a user%password] [--all-domains] [--allocate-gid] [--allocate-uid] [-D domain] [--domain domain] [-g] [--getdcname domain] [--get-auth-user] [-G gid] [-h] [-i user] [-I ip] [-K user%password] [-m] [-n name] [-N netbios-name] [--own-domain] [-p] [-r user] [-s sid] [--separator] [--sequence] [--set-auth-user user%password] [-S sid] [-t] [-u] [--uid-info uid] [--user-domgroups sid] [--user-sids sid] [-U uid] [-V] [-Y sid] [--verbose]
This tool is part of the
program queries and returns information created and used by the
daemon must be configured and running for the
program to be able to return information.
Attempt to authenticate a user via winbindd. This checks both authenticaion methods and reports its results.
Do not be tempted to use this functionality for authentication in third-party applications. Instead use
Get a new GID out of idmap
Get a new UID out of idmap
List all domains (trusted and own domain).
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
options honor this parameter.
Show most of the info we have about the domain.
This option will list all groups available in the Windows NT domain for which the
daemon is operating in. Groups in all trusted domains will also be listed. Note that this operation does not assign group ids to any groups that have not already been seen by
Print username and password used by winbindd during session setup to a domain controller. Username and password can be set using
--set-auth-user. Only available for root.
Get the DC name for the specified domain.
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.
Get user info.
to send a node status request to get the NetBIOS name associated with the IP address specified by the
Attempt to authenticate a user via Kerberos.
Produce a list of domains trusted by the Windows NT server
contacts when resolving names. This list does not include the Windows NT domain the server is a Primary Domain Controller for.
for the SID associated with the name specified. Domain names can be specified before the user name by using the winbind separator character. For example CWDOM1/Administrator refers to the Administrator user in the domain CWDOM1. If no domain is specified then the domain used is the one specified in the
to query the WINS server for the IP address associated with the NetBIOS name specified by the
List own domain.
Check whether winbindd is still alive. Prints out either 'succeeded' or 'failed'.
Try to obtain the list of UNIX group ids to which the user belongs. This only works for users defined on a Domain Controller.
to resolve a SID to a name. This is the inverse of the
option above. SIDs must be specified as ASCII strings in the traditional Microsoft format. For example, S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.
Get the active winbind separator.
Show sequence numbers of all known domains
Store username and password used by winbindd during session setup to a domain controller. This enables winbindd to operate in a Windows 2000 domain with Restrict Anonymous turned on (a.k.a. Permissions compatible with Windows 2000 servers only).
Convert a SID to a UNIX user id. If the SID does not correspond to a UNIX user mapped by
then the operation will fail.
Verify that the workstation trust account created when the Samba server is added to the Windows NT domain is working.
This option will list all users available in the Windows NT domain for which the
daemon is operating in. Users in all trusted domains will also be listed. Note that this operation does not assign user ids to any users that have not already been seen by
Get user info for the user conencted to user id UID.
Get user domain groups.
Get user group SIDs for user.
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.
Print additional information about the query results.
Convert a SID to a UNIX group id. If the SID does not correspond to a UNIX group mapped by
then the operation will fail.
Prints the program version number.
Print a summary of command line options.
The wbinfo program returns 0 if the operation succeeded, or 1 if the operation failed. If the
daemon is not working
will always return failure.
This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
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.
