The idmap_ad plugin provides a way for Winbind to read id mappings from an AD server that uses RFC2307/SFU schema extensions. This module implements only the "idmap" API, and is READONLY. Mappings must be provided in advance by the administrator by adding the posixAccount/posixGroup classes and relative attribute/value pairs to the user and group objects in the AD.
range = low - high
schema_mode = <rfc2307 | sfu >
The following example shows how to retrieve idmappings from our principal and trusted AD domains. If trusted domains are present id conflicts must be resolved beforehand, there is no guarantee on the order conflicting mappings would be resolved at this point. This example also shows how to leave a small non conflicting range for local id allocation that may be used in internal backends like BUILTIN.
[global] idmap backend = tdb idmap uid = 1000000-1999999 idmap gid = 1000000-1999999 idmap config CORP : backend = ad idmap config CORP : 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.
