Description Andree Leidenfrost 2003-11-18 00:47:42 UTC
SIDS are displayed rather than user or group names when selecting
Properties->Security in the context menu for a file or folder.

This is reproducible for two machines both running Samba 3.0 on Debian woody and
from about half a dozen w2k clients.

Best regards

I attach an smb.conf file to start with. Please, let me know if you need any
other information like logs etc.

then don't set it :-)  I've already removed this parameter 
from cvs about 24 hours ago.  It will not exist in 3.0.1.
Comment 3 Andree Leidenfrost 2003-11-18 18:21:48 UTC
Fair enough. By some strange coincidence that's exactly what I had decided
already. ;-) I just thought I report it because it's a bug...

Comment 4 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-11-19 08:34:51 UTC
Thanks.  Actually 'hide local users' is an 
artifact from long ago and not really needed 
any more.  I've been wanted to remove it for 
some time.
