Thanks for the reply, Eric. I was starting to look at using idmap_rid. I have read that an LDAP backend for this is not the best way, and I really did not want another LDAP directory to maintain. I do not have to worry about trusted domains, so that is good.

I was considering putting the tdb files on the shared storage, but I think your comment about keeping the uid values consistent across all samba servers is an important consideration.

I will probably research and implement the idmap_rid solution, unless anyone can provide a better solution. Thanks
