Samba Winbind authentication



I having a problem with using Winbind for authentication to a Windows 2003 AD. The serving is being used as a pop3 mail server. If I run “getent passwd <username>”, nothing is returned. If I run “getent passwd”, I get the information expected. If I then run “getent passwd <username>”, I get the user information. Running “getent passwd” seems to keeping it working for a few minutes for most users. The users it works for changes. I have put it in a cron job to run every minute. That has help a lot.


The message below is what is recorded in the messages log:


Jun 15 14:10:36 sendmailrh01 dovecot(pam_unix)[19486]: check pass; user unknown

Jun 15 14:10:36 sendmailrh01 dovecot(pam_unix)[19486]: authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=

Jun 15 14:10:36 sendmailrh01 dovecot-auth[19486]: pam_krb5[19486]: error getting information about 'dan'


I am running RHEL 4 ES EM64T


Thanks,


Kyle
