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 obsoletes 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 config * : backend = tdb
                idmap config * : range = 1000000-1999999

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

       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
