Re: [Samba] [samba] idmap question




Thank you both for these replies.

Here, at work, "wbinfo --all-domains" gave 5 lines. Let's call MAINDOM the
domain my Samba member is joined to and TRUSTED1 and TRUSTED2 the two
others domains relied by trust relationship, the result is:

# wbinfo --all-domains
BUILTIN
HOSTNAME -> /etc/passwd & /etc/group (I think, words below about this)
MAINDOM
TRUSTED1
TRUSTED2

For me HOSTNAME is for users from /etc/passwd added with "smbpasswd -a". I
think that (and can't test yet until I'm back home but I won't have time to
verify that @home for next days) because as far as I remember, when using
"smbpasswd -a someLocalUser" there is no id mapping, the UID used is the
real one of this someLocalUser. I think that's why both range declared with
idmap directives must not overlap UID/GID from /etc/passwd and /etc/group.

Perhaps as here where there is trust relatinoship your EXAMPLE comes from
an old trust test you made?

As I said above, I think the "HOSTNAME" domain from wbinfo --all-domains is
for users and groups from local files (/etc/passwd and /etc/group). As
already said, I could be wrong.

I don't follow you both on that. I mean I don't understand what could be
the issue.

And using idmap-rid it is just impossible (according to my little knowledge
of Samba) to avoid giving UID or GID: if a user or group exists, it will
have a UID or GID using object's RID + low number of domain range from
"idmap config" config line.

So if there is some issue about giving "domain admins" a GID, I'd be glad
to understand it ;)
