Hi Takahashi,

i want to use winbind to be able to log in just by providing the accountname, not domainname\accountname.

i now added the following to my smb.conf:

idmap domains = MYDOMAIN
idmap uid = 6000-61000
idmap gid = 100-3000
idmap config MYDOMAIN: backend = nss

which does not change anything so far (smb+winbind restarted). The uid/gid ranges cover values which are given to the account in /etc/passwd /etc/group - maybe that is wrong?

best regard,
