Enabling Simple Maps

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.

Note   To access this page you must have typed a valid NIS server name on the General tab.

To enable simple maps

  1. On the primary navigation bar, choose Shares.
  2. Choose Sharing Protocols.
  3. Select NFS Protocol, and then choose Properties.
  4. Choose User and Group Mappings.
  5. Select the Simple Maps tab.
  6. Select the Enable simple maps check box.
  7. On the Windows domain list, select the server name, or the domain to which the server belongs.

    If you select the server name, the local users and groups will be mapped.

  8. Choose OK.
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.
