Chapter 2

Identity Mapping Administration (Tasks)

This chapter describes the identity mapping service that maps Windows security identifiers (SIDs) to Solaris user identifiers (UIDs) and group identifiers (GIDs). The chapter also includes instructions on how to manage name-based mappings.

This chapter covers the following topics:

The idmapd service can run in the global zone or in non-global zones. However, if Solaris Trusted Extensions software is enabled, the idmapd service must run in the global zone.

Note - CIFS is an enhanced version of the SMB protocol, which allows CIFS clients to access files and resources on CIFS servers. The terms SMB and CIFS can be considered interchangeable.
