AFAIK the uid/gid will be same on lin box a and lin box b if the
accounts have been mapped from the same pdc. The pam_smb is a cool
module but for what your doing all that you will use is winbind
(pam_smb is more like a simpler version of winbind). All that NFS
stuff should be transparent though.
Oh yeah and wins names resolution is working again with pre-release 5
RedHat 7.3 RPM and SRPM can be found at
Just one thing though the smbmount is broken on this so it might be best to
just extract the necessary file libnss_wins.so and place it in the
place in your directory tree (/lib/libnss_wins.so) then in
/etc/nsswitch.conf do ..
#hosts: db files nisplus nis dns
hosts: wins files dns
Sweet as ! now you can connect to windows/samba machine without ip
address/nmbloookup bullshi* !
(for those of us who dont have privilege of controlling the dns)

Subject: RE: [ILUG] SMB Authentication questions
Thanks guys :o)
pam_smb and winbind do the first part nicely ... now all I need is a way to
map the UID / GID that samba (whichever module) creates ... essentially I've
got a half-dozen linux boxen that authenticate from an NT domain ... I'd
like to get some form of UID/GID consistancy for NFS shares etc ... so I can
read files I've created on a common share from another box !
