Hi juri. It looks like winbind is having a hard time starting up on your system.

Can you maybe try running '/usr/sbin/winbindd' as root and pasting the output here?

Ahh, perhaps after running winbindd this check the end of /var/log/samba/* and /var/log/syslog for any error messages explaining why it isn't starting? (sudo tail /var/log/syslog).

Hi Juri

For some reason winbindd can't locate/open is configuration file.

Please can you check for that /etc/samba/smb.conf actually exists and has the following permissions:

  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12464 May 2 10:27 /etc/samba/smb.conf

Thanks
