DESCRIPTION

       This tool is part of the samba(7) 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.

OPTIONS

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

           Note
           Do not be tempted to use this functionality for authentication in
           third-party applications. Instead use ntlm_auth(1).

       --allocate-gid
           Get a new GID out of idmap

       --allocate-uid
           Get a new UID out of idmap

       --all-domains
           List all domains (trusted and own domain).

       --domain name
           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 belongs. Currently only the
           --sequence, -u, and -g options honor this parameter.

       -D|--domain-info domain
           Show most of the info we have about the domain.

       -g|--domain-groups
           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 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).

       --get-auth-user
           Print username and password used by winbindd during session setup
           to a domain controller. Username and password can be set using
           --set-auth-user. Only available for root.

       --getdcname domain
           Get the DC name for the specified domain.

       -G|--gid-to-sid gid
           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.

       -i|--user-info user
           Get user info.

       -I|--WINS-by-ip 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.

       -K|--krb5auth username%password
           Attempt to authenticate a user via Kerberos.

       -m|--trusted-domains
           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.

       -n|--name-to-sid name
           The -n option 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) workgroup parameter.

       -N|--WINS-by-name name
           The -N option queries winbindd(8) to query the WINS server for the
           IP address associated with the NetBIOS name specified by the name
           parameter.

       --own-domain
           List own domain.

       -p|--ping
           Check whether winbindd is still alive. Prints out either
           ´succeeded´ or ´failed´.

       -r|--user-groups 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.

       -s|--sid-to-name sid
           Use -s to resolve a SID to a name. This is the inverse of the -n
           option above. SIDs must be specified as ASCII strings in the
           traditional Microsoft format. For example,
           S-1-5-21-1455342024-3071081365-2475485837-500.

       --separator
           Get the active winbind separator.

       --sequence
           Show sequence numbers of all known domains

       --set-auth-user 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 compatible with Windows 2000 servers only).

       -S|--sid-to-uid sid
           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.

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

       -u|--domain-users
           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)

       --uid-info UID
           Get user info for the user conencted to user id UID.

       --user-domgroups SID
           Get user domain groups.

       --user-sids SID
           Get user group SIDs for user.

       -U|--uid-to-sid uid
           Try to convert a UNIX user id to a Windows NT SID. If the uid
           specified does not refer to one within the idmap uid range then the
           operation will fail.

       --verbose
           Print additional information about the query results.

       -Y|--sid-to-gid sid
           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.

       -V
           Prints the program version number.

       -h|--help
           Print a summary of command line options.

EXIT STATUS

       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.

VERSION

       This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite.

       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.

       The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The
       conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander
