Description Andreas Schneider 2012-08-22 13:38:23 UTC
Description of problem:

In Samba 3.6 the id mapping configuration has been changed and simplified. See the release notes:

https://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.6.0.html

and the smb.conf and idmap manpages.

Example:
        workgroup = LEVEL1
        realm = LEVEL1.DISCWORLD.SITE
        security = ads

        # v3.6 common id range
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        idmap config * : range = 1000000-1999999

        # Winbind domain idmap
        idmap config LEVEL1 : backend = rid
        idmap config LEVEL1 : range = 100000000-199999999
