This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.
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.
Attempt to authenticate a user via winbindd(8). This checks both authentication methods and reports its results.
Do not be tempted to use this functionality for authentication in third-party applications. Instead use ntlm_auth(1).
Get a new GID out of idmap
Get a new UID out of idmap
List all domains (trusted and own domain).
Change the trust account password. May be used
in conjunction with
domain in order to change
interdomain trust account passwords.
Store user and password for ccache.
Change the password of a user. The old and new password will be prompted.
Displays information about the current domain controller for a domain.
This parameter sets the domain on which any specified operations will performed. If special domain name '.' is used to represent the current domain to which winbindd(8) belongs. A '*' as the domain name means to enumerate over all domains (NOTE: This can take a long time and use a lot of memory).
Show most of the info we have about the specified domain.
Find a DC for a domain.
Get group info from gid.
Get group info from group name.
This option will list all groups available in the Windows NT domain for which the samba(7) daemon is operating in. Groups in all trusted domains can be listed with the --domain='*' option. Note that this operation does not assign group ids to any groups that have not already been seen by winbindd(8).
Print username and password used by winbindd(8)
during session setup to a domain controller. Username
and password can be set using
Only available for root.
Get the DC name for the specified domain.
Try to convert a UNIX group id to a Windows NT SID. If the gid specified does not refer to one within the idmap gid range then the operation will fail.
Print brief help overview.
Get user info.
queries winbindd(8) to send a node status
request to get the NetBIOS name associated with the IP address
specified by the
Attempt to authenticate a user via Kerberos.
Allows one to request a specific kerberos credential cache type used for authentication.
Use lanman cryptography for user authentication.
Logoff a user.
Define user uid used during logoff request.
Define username used during logoff request.
Looks up SIDs. SIDs must be specified as ASCII strings in the traditional Microsoft format. For example, S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.
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.
queries winbindd(8) for the SID
associated with the name specified. Domain names can be specified
before the user name by using the winbind separator character.
For example CWDOM1/Administrator 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(5)
queries winbindd(8) to query the WINS
server for the IP address associated with the NetBIOS name
specified by the
Use NTLMv1 cryptography for user authentication.
Use NTLMv2 cryptography for user authentication. NTLMv2 is the default method, this option is only maintained for compatibility.
Display whether winbind currently maintains an active connection or not. An optional domain argument limits the output to the online status of a given domain.
List own domain.
Attempt to authenticate a user in the same way pam_winbind would do.
Check whether winbindd(8) is still alive. Prints out either 'succeeded' or 'failed'.
Issue a no-effect command to our DC. This checks if our secure channel connection to our domain controller is still alive. It has much less impact than wbinfo -t.
Try to obtain the list of UNIX group ids to which the user belongs. This only works for users defined on a Domain Controller.
There are two scenaries:
User authenticated: When the user has been authenticated, the access token for the user is cached. The correct group memberships are then returned from the cached user token (which can be outdated).
User *NOT* authenticated: The information is queries from the domain controller using the machine account credentials which have limited permissions. The result is normally incomplete and can be also incorrect.
rid1, rid2, rid3...
Converts RIDs to names. Uses a comma separated list of rids.
Removes an existing GID to SID mapping from the database.
Removes an existing UID to SID mapping from the database.
-s to resolve
a SID to a name. This is the inverse of the
option above. SIDs must be specified as ASCII strings
in the traditional Microsoft format. For example,
Get the active winbind separator.
This command has been deprecated. Please use the --online-status option instead.
Store username and password used by winbindd(8) 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 compatible with Windows 2000 servers only).
Create a GID to SID mapping in the database.
Create a UID to SID mapping in the database.
Convert a SID to a UNIX user id. If the SID does not correspond to a UNIX user mapped by winbindd(8) then the operation will fail.
Get SID aliases for a given SID.
Converts a SID to a full username (DOMAIN\username).
Resolve SIDs to Unix IDs. SIDs must be specified as ASCII strings in the traditional Microsoft format. For example, S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.
Verify that the workstation trust account
created when the Samba server is added to the Windows NT
domain is working. May be used in conjunction with
domain in order to verify interdomain
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 can be listed with the --domain='*' option. Note that this operation does not assign user ids to any users that have not already been seen by winbindd(8) .
Get user info for the user connected to user id UID.
Print brief help overview.
Get user domain groups.
Get user info by sid.
Get user group SIDs for user.
Try to convert a UNIX user id to a Windows NT SID. If the uid specified does not refer to one within the idmap range then the operation will fail.
Print additional information about the query results.
Convert a SID to a UNIX group id. If the SID does not correspond to a UNIX group mapped by winbindd(8) then the operation will fail.
Prints the program version number.
Print a summary of command line options.
Display brief usage message.
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
