I recently had to reinstall Services for Unix on our Windows Server 2003 and now all clients are getting a UID and GID of -2.  The odd part that is throwing me of is that when I log into the server I get the correct credentials of UID 505 and GID of 501.  I have over 300 Users setup in the user name mapping to pull down the same credentials that I am being assigned when I log in locally or through RDC.

Any help or insight would be great. Thanks in advanced.

After reading the ,maphost file in c:\sfu\mapper found out that i needed to add a little "+" to the end of the file to allow all clients access to the user name mapper. Problem solved, hope someone else will find this useful.
