Description Buck Huppmann 2015-07-15 20:39:08 UTC

I may be reading this wrong, so please go easy on me if I am

In this initial commit, it seems like winbindd is caching the lookups in the wrong direction:


E.g., in the first hunk, idmap_uid_to_sid() looks up a uid->sid mapping but then it calls idmap_cache_set_sid2uid() to cache the result for a sid->uid lookup instead.  (In the next hunk, there is a copy-and-paste error that results in setting sid2uid also. It was later corrected to be gid2sid


but that should be sid2gid, i think, likewise)

Am I wrong?

Sorry.  Apologies

I notice samba4 has a unified sid2unixid/unixid2sid caching scheme
that caches the mappings in both directions and doesn't call these
functions any more

samba-3.6.23's tree still has the indicated errors, but i gather
that's unmaintained nowadays
