Description of problem:
Alexander Bokovoy wrote a patch for winbind that allows users to just user 
their acct name rather than the Domain+acct name.  It would be nice if Red Hat 
applied it.

I found the patch at:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Username overlap?
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2002-04-17 17:54:21 EDT
Username overlap is the same as for ldap/nis/etc

But don't apply the patch - the patch requires a fair bit of work in smbd to
make it function correctly - work that has only been done in HEAD (where this
patch is a standard feature.

If the samba developers don't like it, we don't apply it...
Comment 4 Andrew Bartlett 2002-04-22 22:54:33 EDT
Look forward to Samba 3.0, where this will be an offical and supported feature!

(becouse is is really neat, particularly for mail servers etc).
Comment 5 Andrew Bartlett 2002-05-06 06:03:25 EDT
Due to a recent merge of functionaliy from HEAD to 2.2, this option was released
with 2.2.4.  However, it has not been tested, and I'm pretty sure it is broken.  

Furthermore: this breakage might not be immidiatly ovbious - the main issue is
in the SID->name and name->SID calls, not in core operations.

(It was meant to be merged as an undocumented option - but the documentation got
merged just before the release).

Redhat: please don't enable this functionaliy in any kind of setup tool!

Users: You have been warned.
