NAME

idmap_nss - Samba's idmap_nss Backend for Winbind  

DESCRIPTION

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.  

EXAMPLES

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 trusted domains

        [global]
        idmap backend = tdb
        idmap uid = 1000000-1999999
        idmap gid = 1000000-1999999

        idmap config SAMBA : backend  = nss
        idmap config SAMBA : range = 1000-999999
        
 

AUTHOR

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.
