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
