samba - map winbind users to nis uids and gids


Is it possible to map winbind users to nis users?

I've got users that access linux file server from Win stations using Samba
and winbind authentication but also have AIX based workstations accessing
the same server using nis authentication. They have the same username
registered in NIS domain and in Windows domain.

Is it possible to map winbind users (usually using uid & gid > 10000) to nis
users, so user john authenticating from Windows domain doesn't get new
uid and gid ( idmap gid, idmap uid), but maps to an existing NIS user with
the same name.
