After enabling the Winbind, samba and kerberos on Red hat server, do I need to do any on Linux server in case I add a new AD user on the Window server. Do I need to restart any service such that the new user will be put under /etc/passwd ?

Thanks

NO you need not. Basically the users will be added in Windows AD and winbind will look them up upon request. They will not be added to /etc/passwd

To view all your users

getent passwd

This will show you both Linux and Windows users.

To verify that you are seeing all windows users from winbind

wbinfo -a

This would give you all the windows users that winbind can see.

If there are any problems then you need to reload the winbind service

Hi

It will automatically replicate new users to the Linux box. You can force it by deleting the cache file, and then restarting winbind.

rm  /var/cache/samba/netsamlogon_cache.tdb
/etc/init.d/winbind restart
