Sure. But only certain use cases require the same id on all machines,
many don't. I'm just saying that you should better not use idmap_ad,
but instead use eg idmap_autorid unless you're setup requires

I am not saying don't use autorid, I am saying that I will not use it,
I just do not see the point to it, the 'ad' and rid' backends work for
most users.

As said, idmap_ad is broken by design, so eg it also doesn't work with trusts. Most users should use idmap_autorid.

Rowland, this is not about *the* way forward, this is about using the
right backend at the right time.

No Ralph, it is about *the* way forward, Samba needs to get to the
point that it works exactly like Windows (or better), Samba has to
outdo Windows.

that's what I'm saying, to behave like Windows you have to stop using idmap_ad. :)
