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 DOMAINjsmith 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 domains = SAMBA TRUSTEDDOMAINS

            idmap config SAMBA:backend  = nss
            idmap config SAMBA:readonly = yes

            idmap config TRUSTEDDOMAINS:default = yes
            idmap config TRUSTEDDOMAINS:backend = tdb
            idmap config TRUSTEDDOMAINS:range   = 10000 - 50000

            idmap alloc backend      = tdb
            idmap alloc config:range = 10000 - 50000
