Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity

Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity

Resolves the mapping of a Windows user account or group account to a UNIX identifier.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ById
Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity [-Id] <UInt32> [[-AccountType] <WindowsAccountType> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByName
Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity [-AccountName] <String> [[-AccountType] <WindowsAccountType> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity cmdlet queries a Network File System (NFS) server to resolve the mapping of a Windows user account or group account to a UNIX identifier.

When Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity queries the local NFS server, the local NFS server searches its cache. If the NFS server finds the mapping, the information is returned. If the NFS server mapping does not find the mapping in the server cache, the NFS server queries the configured mapping store. If the NFS server finds the mapping in the mapping store, the mapping is returned, locally cached, and periodically refreshed.

The main purpose of Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity is to perform mapping diagnostics. Administrators can determine whether the NFS server can successfully get the correct mappings for users and groups by using its current configuration.

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.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-Id<UInt32>

Specifies the UNIX identifier to resolve to a Windows account name. You can use the AccountType parameter to specify whether the Id parameter value is a user or a group.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Resolve a Windows user account to a UNIX UID

This command resolves the Windows user account PSPinto to UNIX user identifier 402. The output reflects the identity mapping that the local NFS server returns.


PS C:\> Resolve-NfsMappedIdentity -AccountName "PSPinto" -AccountType "User"
