User and Group mapping lets you create inter-platform and cross-platform maps among Microsoft Windows and UNIX user and group accounts even when the user and group names in both environments are not identical.
User and Group mapping also lets you set up one-to-one mappings between Windows users and UNIX users and groups. For example, a Windows user name could be mapped to a UNIX user name, or a UNIX group could be mapped to one or more Windows user accounts. Explicit maps can also be used when the same person has different user names on Windows and UNIX accounts. Using the Explicit Group Maps option lets you maintain a single mapping database for the entire enterprise.
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, these procedures are not applicable.
To create explicit group maps
The mapped groups appear in the Explicitly mapped groups box. If you want to map to a DOMAIN group, type the domain\group name, select a UNIX group, and then the add button next to the domain\group entry box.
You can map groups from one Windows domain to more than one UNIX domain, but not the reverse.
