I am a little lost at to what the problem is here. WINS does not require
winbindd to be running. On the Linux system it requires:
1) In your /etc/nsswitch.conf file:
hosts: files wins [NOTFOUND=return] dns
2) Install the samba file libnss_wins.so.2 in the /lib directory (or on 64-bit
systems in the /lib64 directory)
3) Run nmbd
That's it! What is so difficult? What makes this so complicated? If you do
not need DNS, then don't even run it (or else just run a caching DNS server).
Winbind is orthogonal to wins. They serve entirely differing purposes.
Ah, thank you! That is exactly what I expected. I am pleased to read
that winbind and wins are different beasts, as I have no interest in the
The point is that, under Debian, the /lib/libnss_wins.so.2 file is
distributed only in the winbind package, as confirmed by this search:
So it seems like this is a packaging issue, and not a samba one per se.
