24         This plugin is part of the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>samba</refentrytitle>

28         <para>
29                 <command>winbind_krb5_locator</command> is a plugin that permits MIT and
30                 Heimdal Kerberos libraries to detect Kerberos Servers (for the KDC and
31                 kpasswd service) using the same semantics that other tools of the Samba
32                 suite use. This include site-aware DNS service record lookups and caching
33                 of closest dc.
34                 The plugin uses the public locator API provided by most modern Kerberos
35                 implementations.

39         <title>PREREQUISITES</title>
40         <para>
41                 MIT Kerberos (at least version 1.5) or Heimdal Kerberos (at least version
42                 1.0) is required.
43         </para>
44
45         <para>
46                 The plugin queries the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>winbindd</refentrytitle>
47                 <manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> daemon which needs to be configured
48                 and started separately.
49         </para>
50
51         <para>
52                 The <command>winbind_krb5_locator.so</command> file needs to be manually
53                 copied to the plugin directory of the system Kerberos library.
54
55                 For MIT Kerberos this is often:
56                         <filename>/usr/lib/krb5/plugins/libkrb5/</filename>.
57                 For Heimdal Kerberos this is often:
58                         <filename>/usr/lib/plugin/krb5/</filename>.
59
60                 Please check your local Kerberos installation for the correct
61                 paths. No modification in <filename>/etc/krb5.conf</filename>
62                 is required to enable the use of this plugin.
63         </para>
64         <para>
65                 After copying the locator plugin to the appropriate plugin
66                 directory it should immediately be available for use.
67                 Users should be able to kinit into their kerberized Windows
68                 environment without any modification or servers
69                 being put manually into <filename>/etc/krb5.conf</filename>.
