       wbinfo [ -u ]  [ -g ]  [ -h name ]  [ -i ip ]  [ -n name ]
       [ -s sid ]  [ -U uid ]  [ -G gid ]  [ -S sid ]  [ -Y sid ]
       [  -t  ]   [ -m ]  [ -r user ]  [ -a user%password ]  [ -A
       user%password ]


       This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

       The wbinfo program queries and returns information created
       and used by the  winbindd(8) daemon.

       The  winbindd(8) daemon must be configured and running for
       the wbinfo program to be able to return information.


       -u     This option will list all users  available  in  the
              Windows  NT domain for which the winbindd(8) daemon
              is operating in. Users in all trusted domains  will
              also  be  listed. Note that this operation does not
              assign user ids to any users that have not  already
              been seen by winbindd(8).

       -g     This  option  will list all groups available in the
              Windows NT domain for which the winbindd(8)  daemon
              is operating in. Groups in all trusted domains will
              also be listed. Note that this operation  does  not
              assign  group  ids  to  any  groups  that  have not
              already been seen by winbindd(8).

       -h name
              The -h option queries winbindd(8) to query the WINS
              server  for the IP address associated with the Net­
              BIOS name specified by the name parameter.

       -i ip  The -i option queries winbindd(8) to  send  a  node
              status  request  to get the NetBIOS name associated
              with the IP address specified by the ip  parameter.

       -n name
              The -n option queries winbindd(8) for the SID asso­
              ciated with the name specified. Domain names can be
              specified before the user name by using the winbind
              separator character.  For  example  CWDOM1/Adminis­
              trator  refers  to  the  Administrator  user in the
              domain CWDOM1. If no domain is specified  then  the
              domain  used  is  the one specified in the smb.conf
              workgroup parameter.

       -s sid Use -s to resolve a SID to  a  name.  This  is  the
              inverse of the -n option above. SIDs must be speci­
              fied as ASCII strings in the traditional  Microsoft

       -Y sid Convert a SID to a UNIX group id. If the  SID  does
              not  correspond  to  a  UNIX  group mapped by  win­
              bindd(8) then the operation will fail.

       -t     Verify that the workstation trust  account  created
              when  the  Samba  server is added to the Windows NT
              domain is working.

       -m     Produce a list of domains trusted by the Windows NT
              server  winbindd(8)  contacts when resolving names.
              This list does not include the  Windows  NT  domain
              the server is a Primary Domain Controller for.

       -r username
              Try  to  obtain the list of UNIX group ids to which
              the user belongs. This only works for users defined
              on a Domain Controller.

       -a username%password
              Attempt  to authenticate a user via winbindd.  This
              checks both authenticaion methods and  reports  its

       -A username%password
              Store username and password used by winbindd during
              session setup to a domain controller. This  enables
              winbindd  to  operate in a Windows 2000 domain with
              Restrict Anonymous turned  on  (a.k.a.  Permissions
              compatiable with Windows 2000 servers only).


       The  wbinfo  program returns 0 if the operation succeeded,
       or 1 if the operation failed. If the winbindd(8) daemon is
       not working wbinfo will always return failure.


       This  man  page  is  correct  for version 2.2 of the Samba




       The original Samba software  and  related  utilities  were
       created  by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the
       Samba Team as an Open Source project similar  to  the  way
       the Linux kernel is developed.

       wbinfo and winbindd were written by Tim Potter.
