idmap_tdb - Samba's idmap_tdb Backend for Winbind
The idmap_tdb plugin is the default backend used by winbindd for storing
SID/uid/gid mapping tables.
In contrast to read only backends like idmap_rid, it is an
allocating backend: This means that it needs to allocate new user and group
IDs in order to create new mappings.
range = low - high
Defines the available matching uid and gid range for
which the backend is authoritative.
This example shows how tdb is used as a the default idmap backend. This
configured range is used for uid and gid allocation.
# "backend = tdb" is redundant here since it is the default
idmap config * : backend = tdb
idmap config * : range = 1000000-2000000
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew
Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project
similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
