Our QNAP box sits in our enterprise network.
We are using it to replace some centos file servers - which do windows and NFS sharing. Our challenge is that on these centos boxes we use winbind to do the uid/gid mapping to Active Directory . To ensure that we get the same uid/gid to AD name/group we use the following on all the centos boxes:
idmap config CLEVE:backend = rid
idmap config CLEVE:base_rid = 0
idmap config CLEVE:range = 2000-20000
idmap uid = 1000-2000000
idmap gid = 1000-2000000
Now, our challenge is that we cannot seem to do the same mapping on the QNAP and our inability to correctly map UID/GID to AD user/group causes big problems for NFS sharing.
I cannot seem to get the QNAP people to understand my problem. Essentually in a nutshell - I need common winbind ID database mappings across machines (I think the same problem might be applicable for multiple QNAP appliances).
Anyone have any suggestions.
