I've installed a custom domain controller appliance created by
www.turnkeylinux.org. But for the purposes of my question, we'll assume that
I'm running Ubuntu Server 8.04/Hardy with Samba installed from the repos.
I am having an a problem getting one of my workstation trust accounts to have
the right UID. When I look at "cat /etc/passwrd", the user scannerserver$ has
a unix ID of 1003. However, when I run "sudo pdbedit -L" user scannerserver$
has an id of 4294967295. I think pdbedit will allow me to change the id to the
correct number, but I can't figure out how. So I have two questions:
1) Will this problem cause me issues down the road?
2) How can I change the user id in the samba database?
