Winbind group membership problem

Posted on 2009-02-12
Last Modified: 2013-12-16

I have a RHEL 5.2 server running Samba and winbind, joined to a 2003 AD server.

If I issue a getent group for "group1", it lists all the correct users.  For one of the users, if I do a wbinfo -r on that user, that group's GID is missing. A wbinfo on all other users in that group is correct.

How can I fix this?  I have 4 other identical RHEL servers, and this is not a problem on them.

I've tried restarting the services, blowing away the cache files, and having the effected user log out, with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.  This is preventing this oneuser from accessing his data.

    Fixed the problem by deleting the /var/cache/samba/netsamlogon_cache.tdb file and restarting samba and winbind.
