The answer to yoaur question is ... you cannot do this. Unix user
names and windows user names *MUST BE THE SAME*. The username mapping
done by Samba only affects access to the *files* in the VOB
storage. It *does not affect* ClearCase access controls, ownership or
There is no way to address this problem with Samba username
mapping. You *MUST* have your userids be the same. You can look
forward to nothing but headaches and difficulties if you do not.
