Before You Begin

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The following actions are required before you start AD LDS mapping:

  • Determine the users and groups on the UNIX system that will be mapped to users and groups on the Windows-based computer.

  • Get the UID and GID for each UNIX user, and the GID for each UNIX group.

  • Create a user or group on the Windows-based computer for each corresponding UNIX user or group to map to.


Each UID and GID requires a unique mapping (you cannot use one-to-many or many-to-one mappings).
