NAME
       idmap_nss - Samba's idmap_nss Backend for Winbind

DESCRIPTION
       The idmap_nss plugin provides a means to map Unix users and groups to
       Windows accounts. This provides a simple means of ensuring that the SID
       for a Unix user named jsmith is reported as the one assigned to
       DOMAIN\jsmith which is necessary for reporting ACLs on files and
       printers stored on a Samba member server.

EXAMPLES
       This example shows how to use idmap_nss to check the local accounts for
       its own domain while using allocation to create new mappings for
       trusted domains

                [global]
                idmap config * : backend = tdb
                idmap config * : range = 1000000-1999999

                idmap config SAMBA : backend  = nss
                idmap config SAMBA : range = 1000-999999


AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
