NAME - winbind ID mapping plugin for cifs-utils


       This plugin allows the utilities in cifs-utils to work in conjuction
       with the winbind facility of Samba suite. It handles several functions
       including mapping UID and GID to SIDs and vice versa.

       Utilities are usually configured to use the correct plugin by creating
       a symlink at @pluginpath@ that points to the correct plugin that you
       wish to use.

       This plugin requires that winbindd(8) be properly configured and
