what was this thread called originally? It seems to be interesting.
It looks like it covers pretty much what I am about to do.
I never came across any information about
'idmap backend = ad' (uses the uid and gid information
from active directory) or 'winbind nss info' (uses
the home directory and shell information from AD).

I want winbind to automatically assign both uid and gid to a user that
logs onto a unix machine for the first time. And I need winbind to store
that information in a central place - in the Active Directory for
example. Is this problem covered with 'idmap backend = ad'? What
attributes are being used by this directive? SFU schema?

cheers, Roman
