If enabled, simple maps create automatic mappings between UNIX users and Microsoft Windows users that share the same user name. In a simple user map, users in a Windows domain are implicitly mapped one-to-one to UNIX users on the basis of user name. When the Windows domain and the UNIX passwd and group files or NIS domain are identified, the simple maps function maps users who have the same name in the Windows and UNIX or NIS domain. If no match exists for a user name in either place, that user is not mapped.
To access this page you must have typed a valid NIS server name on the General tab.
To enable simple maps
If you select the server name, the local users and groups will be mapped.
Note NFS is available only if Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX Server for NFS is installed on this server. If NFS is not available on this server, this procedure is not applicable.
