[SOLVED] Windows 7 / Samba password change problem
« on: August 11, 2011, 07:53:39 pm »
Some time ago I noticed that, after it definitely had worked, I can no longer change my Zentyal/Samba password from a Windows 7 PC, while it still works from Windows XP. Normal file access is still OK also with Windows 7. The error code at password change is 1351: ERROR_CANT_ACCESS_DOMAIN_INFO.
It seems like this is caused by the winbind daemon, because when I stop winbindd, password change is OK again. I do not have Zentyal as a PDC nor any other PDC in my network, but it could be that I accidentially turned on PDC once in Zentyal.
Questions: who installs/activates winbind, is it done by Zentyal? Does it need to run? How to deactivate it - simply by deinstalling? - or is there any setting making password change from Windows 7 to work again?
Any help appreciated.

Jerry

Zentyal doesn't run winbind, if you installed it probably broke the users & groups setup.
