winbind error after reboot on proxy squid with ntlm_auth

Hy, i'm running a squid server on debian lenny with ntlm_auth.

Everything is working good after following those two tutorials :


As all was working perfectly i decided to rebbot my server, and after reboot the ntlm-auth was not working anymore.

When i tried to run the command "wbinfo" with many options i had this error message "error looking up domain users" or"error looking up domain group" so i think that the problem deals with winbind module.

I know that proxy user needs rights and that after reboot the rights are reseted, so this problem doesn't come from here.

And when i try to open IE with a client i have this "cache accesss denied" because the ntlm_auth wasn't done.

I tried to restart all services (samba,winbind,squid) without any success, only the "kinit" command is still working...

Does someone have an idea of what is going on with winbind when the server is rebooted ?

Thanks by advance.

My first suggestion would be to check the logs to see what errors are reported during system boot.

i had begon by this but in a wrong way, i wasn't looking for the good log stupid i am !
according to your advice i found the winbind log file and i understood that it was a problem of rights on "/var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged" .
instead of setting "chown proxy:root" like said in the tutos, i set "chown root:root" and modified also the "cache_effective _group" from "root" to "winbindd_priv" in my squid.conf and all works again, even after reboot !!!!!!

Thanks for your advice .
