workstation should be the default.  server is reserved, i believe, for
Backup Domain Controllers.  the majority of machines are going to be
ordinary workstations (ACB_WKSTRUST).

so you are making sure that the unix UID is always unique?  i thought the
uid was a _unix_ uid, so we had to put it as the nobody / guest account?

don't forget that we really actually need to add two more fields: a user
RID and a Primary Group RID, in _addition_ to the unix uid in the
smbpasswd file.

if these are not added, then by default there should exist a "unix
uid/gid" <-> "NT user RID / group RID" function, which we have already
agreed should be based on the NT Posix mapping system (NT User RID = unix
uid + 0x100000; NT Group RID = unix gid + 0x200000" i think).

i think this should be hidden in smbpasswd.c somewhere:

smbpwd = get_smb_passwd_line();
if (!exist_NT_user_rid_field(smbpwd)))
	/* set to default, using posix mapping */
	NT user rid = unix_uid_to_nt_user_rid(smbpwd->unix_uid));


in exactly the same way that the ACB_xxxxx default value is created if one
doesn't exist.

oh, also: the NT user rid and NT group rid need to go into the vuser
struct, alongside the unix uid / gid.

do you want me to do this?
