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
       /etc/cifs-utils/idmap-plugin that points to the correct plugin that you wish to use.

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


       getcifsacl(1), setcifsacl(1), cifs.idmap(8), samba(7), smb.conf(5), winbindd(8)
