KB-7411: Samba Troubleshooting - Finding the location of winbindd for adbindproxy script

13 December,17 at 09:22 PM

When running the adbindproxy script "Please specify the stock samba winbindd listen path(dir) if it is not in [/run/samba/winbindd]" How can one check where the winbindd listening path is located?

Stop all samba services:

/etc/init.d/centrifydc-samba stop

Start the winbind service by itself:
/etc/init.d/winbind start

Search for windbindd socket location:

For Linux:

netstat -anp | grep winbind

For Solaris:
netstat -anv | grep -i winbind

Note the location of where the winbindd socket is located. 
For example if you see,
You would use /var/run/samba/winbindd when prompted.

At option: "Please specify the stock samba winbindd listen path(dir) if it is not in [/run/samba/winbindd]"
Enter path noted earlier for windbindd.

At the bottom of
/etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf check if the winbindd location is correct.
