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
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();
/* 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
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?
