This is very sad news. My add user script creates users in the NIS
database which is made available to several Unix hosts. This is a very
reliable technology: once a user is created, it remains rock solid. I
feel very reluctant for the Unix user ids to depend upon some obscure
IDMAP databases prone to corruption, and the availability of Windows
domain controllers.

Is there a way to map all trusted domain users to the guest account?

So that they have access rights to public shares equal to those of
nonexistent users?
