Linux – Samba Winbind not working in Debian 8


I am setting up a new samba environment based on Debian Jessie.
Installation of PDC was succesfully and Windows clients were able to join. Have a problem at joining the Linux clients.

I was following the tutorial SAMBA Share with Active Directory Login but could not complete. I fail at "chgrp -R "Domain Users" /share, because he will not find the group "chgrp: invalid group: ???domain users???"
wbinfo -u is WORKING
getent passwd is WORKING and shows domain accounts
BUT getent passwd (DOMAINUSER) will not show up anything.

I will paste my smb.conf, nsswitch.conf and krb5.conf, please help me 🙁

any ideas? Do you need more log files?

Best Answer

according to your error message, there may not be a group "Domain Users" on your system, do a

$ grep "Domain Users" /etc/group

possibly you need to do:

# addgroup "Domain Users" (as root)
