linux02 runing SUSE enterprise linux server service pack 3 to a Windows active directory domain
example.com no problem.
fred from the domain can login no problem via
When logged in as domain user, running
groups command shows all domain groups no problem.
fred and reboot
On Windows domain controller, make
fred a member of group
fred logs into
linux02 and runs
groups command, but only all the old groups are displayed. Problem:
fred doesn't appear to be a member of
Now when running
wbinfo --group-info=EXAMPLE\\linux_sudoers, low and behold he appears to be a member:
But when running
groups again, the new group still isn't in the list.
Now back on the Windows domain controller, I create a new user
john and make him a member of
john is now able to login to
linux02 no problem, and when running the
groups command shows he is a member of
Subsequent tests show that a user is essentially locked into the domain group memberships that existed at the time of first login to
linux02 and no changes from the domain will ever reflect regardless of logging out or even rebooting the server. I'm out of ideas. Any hints out there?
@David King was right! Specifically, I needed to run these commands:
service smbfs stop service winbind stop rm -rf /var/lib/samba/*tdb
I didn't have any files in /var/cache/samba/
service smbfs start service winbind start
Logged in with
fred and ran
groups and sure enough he shows as a member of
Thanks @David King!
