Summary0000468: Weird behavior in getent leads to missing full name when retrieving user info
DescriptionThe following strange behavior occurred on a test system connected to Active Directory:

# getent passwd win9

# getent passwd | grep win9
win9:*:20000013:20000002:Windows Guy9:/home/win9:/sbin/nologin

Resetting the winbind cache didn't help.

When an administrator is browsing user information, the win9 full name (Windows Guy9) won't be shown. Bummer.

Turn the log level up to 3 in smb.conf.

Restart winbind.

type date
run getent group

Look in the /var/log/samba/log.wb-DOMAINNAME carefully. You may see an error for that timestamp that indicates an issue enumerating a certain aspect of the DOMAIN or even an attempt to enumerate a TRUSTEDDOMAIN.

If wbinfo is working for users or groups but fails to work for one or the other, the error will show up here. Getent bails if it has an error because /lib64/ or /lib/ is programmed typically to not give data over to nsswitch if it has an error. This is why individual queries for individual groups or users through getent may work when polling the long list fails (ie. getent group "domain users")
