Where Is samba-winbind?

The installer allows you to configure a setup where you authenticate against a Windows domain.
However, the 4.7GB DVD iso doesn’t contain the necessary samba-winbind and krb (krb5?) packages to actually connect.
It prompts you to download the packages.
If you are trying to connect to a domain you are likely unable to have internet access yet.

With such a big iso, why aren’t the necessary packages already included?

The DVD includes these files, however there have been updates since the DVD came out to samba/winbind modules and thus they are downloaded from the update repository instead of installing the old versions from the DVD since you already have network access.

If you have no network access at the time of the installation of the AD modules, they will be installed from the DVD instead.

That is what I expected but not what I saw.
I’ll try installing again to confirm.

If you have internet access during the installation it’ll automatically configure the repositories to point to the d.o.o/update and it’ll pull the updates from there.

If you want to simulate a no-network then just pull the plug.

I located samba-winbind on the DVD:

—> ./suse/x86_64/samba-winbind-32bit-4.1.0-3.5.1.x86_64.rpm

and krb5-1.11.3-3.1.3.x86_64.rpm

Try disabling all the online repos except the DVD.

I don’t know if they are or not, I don’t know which rpms you need
exactly. But you do have a good point: I suggest you report it in
Bugzilla. It can not be corrected for 13.1, and is probably too late for
13.2, but you can try.

We have to verify first what packages are actually needed, and whether
they are on the DVD or not. Onlines updates are moot: the first issue is
to get machines connected, in this case on a domain, then it will get
all the updates.

And, as in this case, those packages are needed to get network up, yast
should not try to get online in order to install them.

So, two issues:

  • make sure the dvd contains them
  • change yast so that it does not try to connect.

And, to solve the issue of installation for you, find out what those
packages are, and if they are not on the DVD, create a local directory
as repository with them, and add it in YaST, with all online repos
disabled (not removed). Then YaST should be able to cope.
