| It's bug #242, titled "Retrieving UNIX UID/GID directly through Active
| Directory from schema extension"
| The person who posted the request talks about using AD4Unix, but I've
| installed Microsoft's Services for Unix and it made similar schema
| Specifically, it added uid, gid, shell, and home directory objects,
plus a
| nice new tab called UNIX Attributes to the user properties window of the
| Active Directory Users and Computers MMC.
| So for instance, something like this should be an option in smb.conf:
| winbind uid = msSFU30UidNumber
| winbind gid = msSFU30GidNumber (this would denote the users Primary group
| name)
| winbind shell = msSFU30LoginShell
| winbind home = msSFU30HomeDirectory
| The people who use AD4Unix could change these variables to whatever it
| creates.
| Anyway, it seems like a much more simple way to get the uid's and
gid's to
| be the same across multiple machines than anything I've seen so far.
| This seems like a huge win to include.

or just use nss_ldap with schema mapping enabled and tell
winbindd not to allocate any uids/gids.
