idmap_nss - Samba's idmap_nss Backend for Winbind
The idmap_nss plugin provides a means to map Unix users and groups to
Windows accounts and obseletes the "winbind trusted domains only"
smb.conf option. This provides a simple means of ensuring that the SID
for a Unix user named jsmith is reported as the one assigned to
DOMAIN\jsmith which is necessary for reporting ACLs on files and
printers stored on a Samba member server.
This example shows how to use idmap_nss to check the local accounts for
its own domain while using allocation to create new mappings for
idmap backend = tdb
idmap uid = 1000000-1999999
idmap gid = 1000000-1999999
idmap config SAMBA : backend = nss
idmap config SAMBA : range = 1000-999999
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.
