I don't have that mapping ...

Did a find for that file and only found it in the source-trees of
Samba in the packaging dir.

I am currently using Suse Linux 9.0 on that box and
configured/compiled Samba 3.0.4 with these options:

$ ./configure --exec-prefix=/usr --with-configdir=/etc/samba
--with-logfilebase=/var/log/samba --with-acl-support
--disable-static --with-smbmount --enable-cups --with-ldapsam

I am not sure about the acl-flag anymore ...

JA> smbldap-populate creates a user named 'Administrator' with a uid=0

changed it to "1" and created root with uid=0 already.

After that did "smbpasswd root".

(I still find it confusing to have all those ways to modify/set
passwds: smbpasswd, smbldap-passwd, pdbedit ... which one to use

I think I could start over and edit the populate-script to create root
w/ uid=0

Thanks ...
