Actually that is what we want. Under nfs for our Linux clients,
everything comes from the directory. Under s3fs, uidNumber and gidNumber
still have to come from idmap. I think your patch will allow s3fs to
also pull uidNumber:gidNumber from the directory if they are already
there. Have I got thhat right?
I shall surely look at the manpage patch but could you tell me if
idmap config DOMAIN : backend = rfc2307
goes into smb.conf global section?
Cheers and thanks for your time.
