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 samba(7) suite.
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.
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 ntlm_auth(1).
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
-g 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 samba(7) 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 winbindd(8).
Print username and password used by winbindd
during session setup to a domain controller. Username
and password can be set using
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.
queries winbindd(8) 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 winbindd(8) contacts when resolving names. This list does not include the Windows NT domain the server is a Primary Domain Controller for.
queries winbindd(8) 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 smb.conf(5)
queries winbindd(8) 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.
-s 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,
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 winbindd(8) 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 winbindd(8) 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 winbindd(8) .
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 winbindd(8) 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 winbindd(8) daemon is not working
wbinfo will always return
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.
