but it is the wrong approach imho, we should really push for winbind,
however when for any reason winbind is not available, we should still
use idmap to solve sids->uids only the admin will be forced to do the
mapping by hand with a tool like smbgroupmapping that currently we use
for groups. I really think that until the admin does not map the suers,
the unmapped uids shuld simply not be mapped, and an error sent into the
log (we may also think of an automatic mapping for NAS products, and
lazy admins ;)
