win-unix name-mapping for multiple domains

Hello,

 

I am trying to find documentation for when name-mapping is required based on the Windows domain they are coming from. We have multiple domains and often times users coming in from SMB to a unix security-style volume will be mapped without name-mapping in place. Other times, it is required but it seems like it is only when they come from specific other domains.

 

Is there any documentation that explains when name-mapping is necessary (e.g. two-way trusts, one-way trusts, or some other factor)?

 

Thanks,

Alex
