METHODS

new

args hash

sid

If this is specified, this base SID will be used instead of trying to automatically figure out what to use.

domain

If this is set to 1, it will try to use get the domain SID instead of the local SID.

    my $sidhelper->new({sid=>'S-1-5-21-1234-56789-10111213'});
    if($sidhelper->{error}){
        print "Error!\n";
    }

uid2sid

Convert a UID to SID.

   my $sid=$sidhelper->uid2sid('1002');
   if ($sidhelper){
       print "Error!\n";
   }

gid2sid

Convert a GID to SID.

   my $sid=$sidhelper->gid2sid('1002');
   if ($sidhelper){
       print "Error!\n";
   }

errorblank

This is a internal function and should not be called.

ERROR CODES

1

"net getdomainsid" exited with a non-zero.

2

"net getlocalsid" exited with a non-zero.

3

No UID specified.

4

No UID specified.

5

Non-numeric value for UID or GID.

SID DISCOVERY

This requires Samba to be installed. The command net is used, which requires this being ran as root.

CONVERSION METHOD

This uses the method from smbldap-tools.

    $sid=$uid*2+1000
    $sid=$gid*2+1001

This method means both both user and group info is can be stored in the same space. Groups are always odd, while users are always even.
