Freenas: Plagued by name to sid deadlock errors?

And here are the permissions as seen on Windows. I have Account Unknown, where probably I want it to recognize it as something like jnewsome (Unix User\jnewsome).  And the Freenas console shows something like

“STATUS=deamon on ‘winbindd’ finsihed starting up and ready to serve connectionssam_sids_to_names: possible deadlock – trying to lookup SID S-XXXXXX”



service samba_server stop
sqlite3 /data/freenas-v1.db ‘update services_cifs set cifs_SID=”S-1-5-21-1590911872-798304854-2854342261″‘
service ix-pre-samba start
service samba_server start


[root@freenas] ~# net groupmap list
users (S-1-5-21-1590911872-798304854-2854342261-1001) -> users
[root@freenas] ~# net groupmap delete sid=”S-1-5-21-1590911872-798304854-2854342261-1001″
Sucessfully removed S-1-5-21-1170145438-4009580803-3350505473-1001 from the mapping db
[root@freenas] ~# net groupmap add unixgroup=users rid=1001
Successfully added group users to the mapping db as a domain group​

  3. mount -urw /
  4. hash -r

  6. Run the commands the script says to after completion or reboot
