Description John H Terpstra (mail address dead( 2003-06-01 21:40:23 UTC
passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:         DEBUG(0, ("idmap uid range defined, non unix
accounts enabled\n"));
passdb/pdb_tdb.c:               DEBUG(0, ("idmap uid range defined, non unix
accounts enabled\n"));

Means we report that we support "non unix accounts" - which would be fine if we
did! Since we do not this is a bogus message! It will bite us if we do not
change it.

[22:35:31] <abartlet> you can file a bug against the fact that we don't support
it for users (ie, need 
[22:35:43] <abartlet> and that we don't restrict it to machines
[22:35:56] <abartlet> (ie, we need to stop people adding useless accounts)
[22:36:19] <abartlet> there is also a bug needing filing for the fact that we
don't setup the idmap connection for 
new vampire users
[22:36:31] <abartlet> and that we don't tell the user to up the 'algorithmic RID

The messages have been droped in severity, and non-unix account do exist
correctly in the passdb.  The only bug here is preventing people adding users to
the system, as it only works for machines at present.

defect is no longer valid since this code has been rewritten.
The recent winbindd changes make it possible to support
automatic creation of users & groups without external scripts.

Removing old alpha versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
