Hi Rowland,

I got it working for myself...
As information: I need to change the smb.conf.

Now it seems to work as expected. Hopefully for a long time...

Then the winbind 'ad' backend will never work and you will never have any AD users & groups as Unix users and groups.

Replace this block in smb.conf:

        idmap config * : range = 2000-10000
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : backend = ad
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : range = 200000-1000200000
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : unix_primary_group = yes
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : schema_mode = rfc2307
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : unix_nss_info = yes

With this:

        idmap config * : range = 3000-7999
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : backend = rid
        idmap config AD-QUEO-ORG : range = 10000-1000200000

It is either that, or start populating AD with uidNumber & gidNumber attributes.
