I recently upgraded from Samba 4.4 to Samba 4.8 when moving from RHEL 7.3
to RHEL 7.6. Now our UIDs and GIDs are not mapping properly. I tried to
downgrade and that broke other applications.

I have also modified the smb.conf file with nearly every option I found
online and it either returns "User not Found" or incorrect UID and GID

I cannot utilize the smb.conf file that is working correctly on our 7.3 and
4.4 running VMs because windbind will no start due to RID being used as the

Any suggestions?
