I mentioned in the first email that I was using 'getent group' for testing.
This unfortunately yields no results other than that of the system group
Using jabberd2 with pam auth shows that pam_winbind is working, it's just not
submitting the username correctly but that's another issue.
Using nss_ldap on the same system and testing with getent works flawlessly.
Even if there was a failure to utilise libnss_winbind properly, it would be
reported within winbindd debug. At this point I'm not seeing anything, as if
the library is not where it is suppose to be.
And like I said, I've tried copying, linking and renaming in multiple
locations to no avail.
This problem isn't mission critical, it's more like an option I tried and
moved on from but never-the-less, I could see potential for other things I am
needing to consolidate at a later date.
