The manual pages smb.conf, idmap_tdb, idmap_rid, idmap_autorid,
idmap_ad ... contain all information that is needed.

It should not be exaggeratedly hard to set it up correctly
if you follow those docs (in a version matching your code).

I admit that there are things that could be improved,
for instance the condifigurability of "nss info", but
that can be done.
