Hi John/List,

	I'm attemtpting this (idmap in LDAP) with samba3.0.1 and Sun DS 5.2 but without any success. I've tried what John T has suggested below but my idmap OU is still empty (adapted LDAP commnads for Sun DS). I cannot see any errors in either Samba or Sun DS logs, does anyone have any troubleshooting tips to help work out why this isn't working?

		many thanks Andy.

Did you create the container for the ou=Idmap in your LDAP database?
The IDMAP entries are automatically added to LDAP - IF the container
exists, and so long as Samba can access that database.

Also, I suggest you store your machine accounts in the Users container
and not in the Computers container. Samba does not at this time search the
Computers container correctly.

Execute the following to find out if your LDAP database has an IDMAP
	slapcat | grep -i IDMAP

If nothing is returned, execute this:

ldapadd -x -D "cn=admin,dc=tow,dc=net" -w 'password' << EOR
dn: ou=Idmap,dc=abmas,dc=biz
objectClass: organizationalunit
ou: idmap
structuralObjectClass: organizationalunit

Now you must stop samba, delete the winbind*tdb files, restart samba,
	wbinfo -u
And that should automatically populate your LDAP IDMAP database.
