Hello all,

I'd like to know how to clear winbind cache. The problem is that we have
decided to change uid and gid mapping range, but changing smb.conf
accordingly didn't help. We use ldap as backend. After deleting all idmap
entries in ldap nothing changed. If we disable winbindd caching with -n
switch we receive desired effect - users get mapped to new uids and gids.
Restarting winbindd without -n reverts everything back - users are mapped to
old id's. Stoping winbind, removing winbind_cache.tdb file and starting
winbind doesn't solve the issue.
