----------------------------------------
winbind ID mapping plugin for cifs-utils
----------------------------------------
:Manual section: 8

***********
DESCRIPTION
***********

This plugin allows the utilities in cifs-utils to work in conjuction with
the winbind facility of Samba suite. It handles several functions including
mapping UID and GID to SIDs and vice versa.

Utilities are usually configured to use the correct plugin by creating a
symlink at *@pluginpath@* that points to the correct plugin that you wish
to use.

This plugin requires that winbindd(8) be properly configured and running.
