SURS tdb is, i presume a means to store SID to UID Resolution System
mappings in a tdb database.

SURS is a trivial system that stores one-to-one mappings of uid + SID
tuples and one-to-one mappings of gid + SID tuples.

the SIDS in each of the two tables can be unique, depending on whether
your underlying POSIX system supports the concept of gids owning files or
not, which can be emulated [if your POSIX system doesn't support this] by
allowing a SID to be mapped in one table to a uid and in the other table
to a gid.
