Detailed Description

The New-NfsMappedIdentity cmdlet creates a new Network File System (NFS) mapped identity between a UNIX user account or group account and a Windows user account or group account. If a specified user account or group account does not exist, the New-NfsMappedIdentity cmdlet can create the account, set its user ID (UID) and group ID (GID) attributes, and update user membership in the group.

A mapped identity associates a Windows user account or group account to a UNIX user account or group account. A UID or GID identifies a UNIX account namespace. These elements are associated with the corresponding elements of a Windows account namespace: a user name or a group name. By using a mapped identity, a user who is logged on to a UNIX domain can access shared resources in a Windows domain without having to log on to the Windows domain.

For more information about NFS, see Network File System. For more information about NFS account mapping, see NFS Account Mapping Guide and Identity Management for UNIX.

Examples

Example 1: Create a mapped identify for a UNIX user account and a Windows user account

This command creates a mapped identity for a UNIX user that has a UID of 500, and maps it to the Windows account name Contoso\JBrown in a Windows group that has the group identifier of 41. The command stores the mapped identity in the configured Active Directory domain of the local computer. If the user account does not already exist, the command creates it.


PS C:\> New-NfsMappedIdentity -MappingStore "AD" –Server "Contoso" -UserName "JBrown" -UserIdentifier 500 –GroupIdentifier 41 

Example 2: Create a mapped identity for a UNIX group account and a Windows group account

This command creates a mapped identity for a UNIX group that has a group identifier of 501 and maps it to the Windows group account that is named Operators. The mapped identity is stored in the configured LDAP store on the computer that is named LdapServer01, that the NFS server “NFSServer-012” uses. The command also creates a local group account named Operators on the NFS server NFSServer-012 if it does not already exist.


PS C:\> New-NfsMappedIdentity -MappingStore "Ldap" -GroupName "Operators" -GroupIdentifier 501 -Server "LdapServer01:389" -NfsServer "NFSServer-012"

Example 3: Create an identity mapping and create the user account and group account if they do not exist

This command creates a mapped identity for a UNIX user whose UID is 500 and maps it to the Windows account named Contoso\JCool. The mapped identity is stored in the Active Directory domain named Contoso. If the user account Contoso\JCool does not exist, the command creates the user account. If the group account Operators does not exist, the command creates the group, assigns GID 501 to the group, and adds the user account Contoso\JCool to the group.


PS C:\> New-NfsMappedIdentity -MappingStore "AD" –Server "Contoso" -UserName "JCool" -UserIdentifier 500 -GroupIdentifier 501 -PrimaryGroup "Operators"
