ProcedureHow to Show a Mapping for a Particular Identity

The idmap show command enables you to view the particular name or ID for a name or ID that you specify.

  1. Show the equivalent identity for a particular name or ID.

    $ idmap show [-c] [-v] identity [target-type]

    By default, the idmap show command only shows mappings that have already been established.

    For example, to view the SID that is mapped to UID 50000, type:

    $ idmap show uid:50000 sid

    To view the Solaris user name for the Windows user name, type:

    $ idmap show

    If you specify the -c option, idmap show forces the evaluation of rule-based mapping configurations or the dynamic allocation of IDs. This command also shows mapping information when an error occurs to help diagnose mapping problems.

    The -v option includes additional information about how the identity mapping was generated, which can help with troubleshooting. The following example shows that the mapping is ephemeral and was retrieved from the cache:

    # idmap show -v sid:S-1-5-21-2949573101-2750415176-3223191819-884217
    sid:S-1-5-21-2949573101-2750415176-3223191819-884217 -> uid:2175201213
    Source: Cache
    Method: Ephemeral

    For name-based mappings, the idmap show -v command shows either the mapping rule or the directory distinguished name with the attribute and value that created the mapping.
