I am new to the forum and have a bit of a problem...
I am trying to change the windows generated UID numbers to specific UIDs when I log in to the linux machines.
I am having trouble changing the UIDs to specific numbers. I downloaded and installed SFU and changed the unix ids on the windows side but the ids aren't changing on the linux side when I log in. they are still the same windows generated UIDs. I attempted changing the winbind_idmap.tdb file which did let me change the UID on the local machine (which is fine) but when I log in as that user the UID will not resolve to the user name anymore (and i get weird errors).
I modified the winbindd_idmap.tdb file with no problems and got it to work when I did an
Command it would show the changed UID and GID.. The problem I am having now is that when I try to login as the modified user it cannot resolve a username to that UID. When I open a terminal it looks like this…
[I have no [EMAIL="name!@computer"]name!@computer[/EMAIL] directory]
Is there a file that maps UIDs to specific user names? I looked in the samba directory (where I found the winbindd_idmap.tdb file) and no other database files have username information in them.
Any ideas on that?
Any help would be great,
