ad* commands fail with "undefined symbol: libiconv_open" errors


If Centrify DirectControl agent, Samba are installed on the machine and if "hosts" in /etc/nsswitch.conf has "wins" as the first entry then executing ad* commands results in the following error:

adinfo: relocation error: /lib/ undefined symbol:


Either move wins from being the first parameter value for "hosts" in nsswitch.conf or remove it.
