	This plugin is part of the <a class="citerefentry" href="samba.7.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">samba</span>(7)</span></a> suite.
	</p><p>
		<code class="literal">winbind_krb5_locator</code> is a plugin that permits MIT and
		Heimdal Kerberos libraries to detect Kerberos Servers (for the KDC and
		kpasswd service) using the same semantics that other tools of the Samba
		suite use. This include site-aware DNS service record lookups and caching
		of closest dc.
		The plugin uses the public locator API provided by most modern Kerberos
		implementations.
	</p></div><div class="refsect1" title="PREREQUISITES"><a name="id266356"></a><h2>PREREQUISITES</h2><p>
		MIT Kerberos (at least version 1.5) or Heimdal Kerberos (at least version
		1.0) is required.
	</p><p>
		The plugin queries the <a class="citerefentry" href="winbindd.8.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">winbindd</span>(8)</span></a> daemon which needs to be configured
		and started separately.
	</p><p>
		The <code class="literal">winbind_krb5_locator.so</code> file needs to be manually
		copied to the plugin directory of the system Kerberos library.

		For MIT Kerberos this is often:
			<code class="filename">/usr/lib/krb5/plugins/libkrb5/</code>.
		For Heimdal Kerberos this is often:
			<code class="filename">/usr/lib/plugin/krb5/</code>.

		Please check your local Kerberos installation for the correct
		paths. No modification in <code class="filename">/etc/krb5.conf</code>
		is required to enable the use of this plugin.
	</p><p>
		After copying the locator plugin to the appropriate plugin
		directory it should immediately be available for use.
		Users should be able to kinit into their kerberized Windows
		environment without any modification or servers
		being put manually into <code class="filename">/etc/krb5.conf</code>.

	This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite.
	</p></div><div class="refsect1" title="AUTHOR"><a name="id266884"></a><h2>AUTHOR</h2><p>
		The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew
		Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source
		project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

		The winbind_krb5_locator manpage was written by Guenther Deschner.
