Re: cannot find name for group ID on all groups

Hi Arthur,
Thank you very much for your help.

It was the objectSid. I'm far from familiar with LDAP so this little pointer was what was needed. I have one remaining question... but will raise another thread since it is unrelated.

Kind Regards

Note that the value after objectSid needs to match the SID of your
domain as it is configured in AD. You can probably use ldapsearch to
find the correct value.

Can you provide the output of nslcd -d with "getent group
existinggroup" and "getent group existinggid"? Are the username and
userid lookps working as expected?

Kind regards,
