NAME

       idmap_rid - Samba's idmap_rid Backend for Winbind

DESCRIPTION

       The idmap_rid backend provides a way to use an algorithmic mapping scheme to map UIDs/GIDs
       and SIDs. No database is required in this case as the mapping is deterministic.

       Currently, there should to be an explicit idmap configuration for each domain that should
       use the idmap_rid backend, using disjoint ranges.

       NOTE: The idmap_rid backend can NOT bet used as the default backend. One usually needs to
       define a writeable default idmap range, using a backend like tdb or ldap that can create
       unix ids, in order to be able to map the BUILTIN sids and other domains, and also in order
       to be able to create group mappings. See the example below.

IDMAP OPTIONS

       range = low - high
           Defines the available matching uid and gid range for which the backend is
           authoritative. Note that the range acts as a filter. If algorithmically determined UID
           or GID fall outside the range, they are ignored and the corresponding map is
           discarded. It is intended as a way to avoid accidental UID/GID overlaps between local
           and remotely defined IDs.

       base_rid = INTEGER
           Defines the base integer used to build SIDs out of a UID or a GID, and to rebase the
           UID or GID to be obtained from a SID. This means SIDs with a RID less than the base
           rid are filtered. The default is not to restrict the allowed rids at all, i.e. a
           base_rid value of 0.

           Use of this parameter is deprecated.

THE MAPPING FORMULAS

       The Unix ID for a RID is calculated this way:

                          ID = RID - BASE_RID + LOW_RANGE_ID.

       Correspondingly, the formula for calculating the RID for a given Unix ID is this:

                          RID = ID + BASE_RID - LOW_RANGE_ID.

EXAMPLES

       This example shows how to configure two domains with idmap_rid, the principal domain and a
       trusted domain, leaving the default id mapping scheme at tdb. The example also
       demonstrates the use of the base_rid parameter for the trusted domain.

                [global]
                security = domain
                workgroup = MAIN

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

                idmap config MAIN : backend     = rid
                idmap config MAIN : range       = 10000 - 49999

                idmap config TRUSTED : backend  = rid
                idmap config TRUSTED : range    = 50000 - 99999
