Hi, All

>From the winbindd man page, there should be winbindd_idmap.tdb to store the
sid/uid/gid mapping. But in my setup, i can't find it. I can only see
winbindd_cache.tdb. Can you tell me how to generate winbindd_idmap.tdb?

  idmap uid = 10000-1000000
  idmap gid = 10000-1000000
  idmap backend = rid
  winbind enum users = no
  winbind enum groups = no
  winbind use default domain = no

# ls /var/lib/samba/winbindd_cache.tdb
# ls /var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb
ls: cannot access /var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb: No such file or

Best Regards.
