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 classess and relative attribute/value pairs to the users and groups objects in AD
range = low - high
schema_mode = <rfc2307 | sfu >
The following example shows how to retrieve idmappings from our principal and and trusted AD domains. All is needed is to set default to yes. If trusted domains are present id conflicts must be resolved beforehand, there is no guarantee on the order confliting 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 BULTIN.
[global] idmap domains = ALLDOMAINS idmap config ALLDOMAINS:backend = ad idmap config ALLDOMAINS:default = yes idmap config ALLDOMAINS:range = 10000 - 300000000 idmap alloc backend = tdb idmap alloc config:range = 5000 - 9999
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.
