Trying to direct the conversation back onto more useful lines.. :-).

Commit c906153cc7af21abe508ddd30c447642327d6a5d is the
removal of winbind_uid_to_sid() and winbind_gid_to_sid()

-bool winbind_uid_to_sid(struct dom_sid *sid, uid_t uid);
-bool winbind_gid_to_sid(struct dom_sid *sid, gid_t gid);

There are calling the wbcUidToSid() and wbcGidToSid()
functions internally, which can still be called by wbinfo.

How is FreeIPA using these ?

It also removes:

-/* The following definitions come from passdb/pdb_unixid.c */
-void unixid_from_uid(struct unixid *id, uint32_t some_uid);
-void unixid_from_gid(struct unixid *id, uint32_t some_gid);
-void unixid_from_both(struct unixid *id, uint32_t some_id);

Which are only translating into a structure.

Does keeping that code for the back-ports work ? What
exactly do you need these for ?

Looking at the attachments for:


Can you re-open bug https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13813
and upload a version of the 4.10.x, 4.9.x, 4.8.x back-port patches
that will work for you and FreeIPA so I can take a look at the
complete list of things you need for a working backport ?

Also, c906153cc7af21abe508ddd30c447642327d6a5d isn't
present in the current attachment for the 4.8.x back-port,
or in the 4.9.x back-port, but only in the 4.10.x back-port.

Is that the only back-port you need modifying ?

I'm still trying to get a good handle on the problem
