Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services As Identity Mapping Source

Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) is used for identity mapping on computers that run Windows
Server 2008 R2 in an environment where no Active Directory exists to support user mapping.
Before you start AD LDS mapping:

Determine the users and groups on the UNIX-based computer that must 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 UNIX user or group to be mapped.

NOTE: Each UID and GID requires a unique mapping. You cannot use one-to-many or many-to-one mappings.
