We have decided to migrate our NT4 domain to an AD based domain. For
the sake of caution, we decided to migrate to a parallel domain, rather
than upgrade the NT4 PDC.
So here's the problem, we have a Samba file server that is
authenticating using Winbind. Currently all files are owned by
NTDOMAIN\USER. I am having some problems already when ADDOMAIN\USER
accesses files that they used to own, but no longer do.
When I move the Samba server to the AD Domain, I expect that anyone left
on NTDOMAIN is going to have problems accessing their files. Is this
correct? Or will the files continue to be owned by NTDOMAIN\USER? Is
there a way I can use the usermap file during the transition to avoid
If the files stay owned by NTDOMAIN\USER, is there an easy way to shift
ownership to ADDOMAIN\USER? I can write a script, but the filer uses XFS
ACLs, so I would effectively have to have a script walk through every
ACL to make the change.
