This was my first assumption as I use nss_ldap quite a bit for virtual=20
As mentioned I tried copying and linking but no joy.
I found an archive from way back stating that libnss_winbind was not suppor=
and that the nss_ldap library had been modified for NetBSD but the=20
pam_winbind library should still allow authentication if you modify your=20
I thought seeing as the article was quite old that this may have changed.

=46rom my understanding I should at least receive debug from winbindd once=
libnss_winbind has been accessed for retrieving the group listing from the=
DC. So far I get nothing at all. It seems the library is not in the right=20
spot, linked correctly or is just not being used.
As the program I am using to test merely uses nsswitch I wouldn't know wher=
to look for any calls possibly being made to the required library.
I guess the answer I am looking for is a firm 'yes this facility works, I h=
it set like this' :) ... or a 'no it's not supported' would suffice.
Thanks for your help.
