[Samba] smb.conf username map entry does not work

Hi folks,

I have got the following setup:

OS: CentOS 7.5 1804 in a HP DL120 server

Samba AD member server with standard Samba 4.7.1 from the CentOS 7.5 distribution.

I have got a problem that the "username map" entry in smb.conf does not seem to have any effect at all. In the mapping file there is a mapping from Administrator to root. But when I run id Administrator I do not get the mapping to root. The result of the id command looks like:

uid=10500(administrator) gid=10513(domain_users) groups=10513(domain_users), 10500(administrator), 10512(domain_admins), 10572(denied_rodc_password_replication_group), 10518(schema_admins),10519(enterprise_admins), 10520(group_policy_creator_owners), 3001(BUILTIN\users),3000(BUILTIN\administrators)

and getent passwd Administrator gives:


This in turn give problems when setting up a share with the RSAT tools. It is not possible to use the administrator account, as it seems to behave like any user account, and not an Administrator account. Also, for example setting permissions on a file, and using Administrator, sets permission to the user Administrator, and not root.

I wiped all files under /var/lib/samba and /run/samba, and rejoined the server, but it did not change things at all. I also tried to set the uidNumber=0 in the ADUC tool, but that did not help either.

I would be very grateful for any ideas.

Best regards,
