trying to investigate my xfs-acl problem I think I have found the
In smbd/uid.c the function "sid_to_uid" resolves SIDs to unix user
names. This is done as follows:
- First the domain part of the SID is compared to the local domain (if
the SID belongs to the samba server it can be resolved locally)
- In any other cases winbindd is asked
This works well if the samba server is the domain controller, but it
seems to fail when an NT 4 Server is used as password server.
So I suppose there is one step missing in between: If the domain part
of the SID is equal to the domain name (set by the workgroup parameter)
ask a PDC or BDC (set by the password server parameter or magically
found out with *).
Something with cli_lsa_lookup_sids() seems to be helpful, just as in
Am I totally wrong?
