If you have Windows clients, choose an ID mapping method.
Note: To use ID mapping, Windows clients must be running StorNext 2.7. Xsan controllers and clients must be running Xsan 1.3 or later.
Generate IDs from GUID: Windows clients dynamically generate UIDs and GIDs based on GUID information in an Active Directory domain.
Use IDs from LDAP (RFC 2307): Windows clients get UID and GID values from the uidNumber and gidNumber attributes in Active Directory records.
For more information, see Mapping Windows User and Group IDs on page 112.
