NAME

       idmap_hash - Samba´s idmap_hash Backend for Winbind

DESCRIPTION

       The idmap_hash plugin implements a hashing algorithm used to map SIDs for domain users and
       groups to 31-bit uids and gids, respectively. This plugin also implements the nss_info API
       and can be used to support a local name mapping files if enabled via the "winbind
       normalize names" and "winbind nss info" parameters in smb.conf.

IDMAP OPTIONS

       name_map
           Specifies the absolute path to the name mapping file used by the nss_info API. Entries
           in the file are of the form "unix name = qualified domain name". Mapping of both user
           and group names is supported.

EXAMPLES

       The following example utilizes the idmap_hash plugin for the idmap and nss_info
       information.

                [global]
                idmap config * : backend = hash
                idmap config * : range = 1000-4000000000

                winbind nss info = hash
                winbind normalize names = yes
                idmap_hash:name_map = /etc/samba/name_map.cfg
