It is a darn sight more helpful than the info you provided to try and
get your problem fixed, but lets try going a bit deeper into the wiki,
They should supply you with enough info to fix your problem.
To unsubscribe from this list go to the following URL and read the
I provided what I thought was relevant and stated if more info was needed
to just ask. Instead, you just refer me to the main page of the wiki. I
don't know why you assume I didn't comb through the entire wiki looking for
the answer to my problem. Naturally, that's the first thing I did. Also, I
went through all the config related to NIS and Winbind and cannot find
anything that would lead me to think the OS shouldn't see the domain groups
and users. I checked the logs, still no errors related to that.
Can we get past this? I don't know what you expect from me? I'm asking for
help. What is it that you're missing from me to actually help me?
FWIW in the "SeDiskOperatorPrivilege" section of the wiki it suggests that
if the output of "getent group "Domain Admins" does not return the expected
result, to refer to the NSS Configuration -which is blank. So I'm not clear
at all on how to troubleshoot that side.
For the idmap, in the Prerequisite section, there is no detail on how to
set: "Users must have at least the uidNumber and groups the gidNumber
attribute set. When using the rfc2307 winbind NSS info mode, user accounts
must also have the loginShell, unixHomeDirectory and primaryGroupID set."
I have RSAT / ADUC install on a workstation and can connect to the DC and
open the UNIX Attributes tab.
