Description Yuri 2008-05-30 20:00:12 UTC
"compat" mode really works only with "nis", nothing else.

It is still possible to run _both_ NIS and WINBIND at the same time, 
but not in "compat" mode.

Working nsswitch.conf file:
group: file nis winbind

But it means _all_ NIS domain is imported, all "+" and "-" are ignored in group or passwd.

Neither of those two works:
group: compat winbind
group_compat: nis
group: compat
group_compat: nis winbind


don't use "compat" mode. Simply goes with ordinary syntax:

group: files nis winbind
passwd: file nis winbind
How-To-Repeat: 1) enable NIS, verify if it works
2) ebale winbind, verify it works
3) change /etc/nsswitch.conf to enable both in compat mode
