Users and groups not showing in GUI...


Post by Cloggs » 16 Feb 2019 18:39


I have successfully joined my XigmaNAS installation to my Samba AS environment without any issues. I can see users with

Code: Select all

getent passed

Code: Select all

wbinfo -u
. I can see groups with

Code: Select all

wbinfo -g
. With SSH enabled, I can even login with an AD user. Basically, everything looks good on that side of things.

However, despite this, there is a disconnect between the OS side of things and GUI side of things....users and groups are not appearing in the backend, so I am unable to assign any share permissions.

I've seen similar posts, but I've not seen any conclusion, or the thread went dead so I'm hoping someone can respond and advise!

The only thing I can think of is that AD users and groups have UID's and GID's which are 10 digits long and that there is some kind of range set in the code that is not allowing the users and groups above a certain range to show up?!

I've not seen any id ranges that can be configured in the backend, sadly.
