Description Luke Mewburn 2004-12-15 03:36:19 UTC
Various people have the need to use any existing UNIX account for the UID
mapping,  yet still retain the ability for winbind to fake up UIDs for ADS-only

I investigated various solutions to this problem, and it turns out that Samba
doesn't support this "as-is".  So I implemented a "trim default domain" feature.

See my discussions on samba@ and samba-technical@ in October 2004 for more
details, including:

Luke, I thought about this athe other day.  The check needs to 
be in winbindd I think in order to get consistent behavior
from shell utilities.  But I haven't come up with a way to 
do this without introducing race conditions.

Marking as wont fix since bugzilla doesn't have a "not accepting patch"
resolution field.
