Sorry,I did not speak well, my questions are mainly about performance,
for example during a transfer of many small files. Does SID resolution
in ACLs impact performance through IPA integration? The second
questions on winsync had the same purpose of knowing if the user is on
IPA or in trust, have an affects performance.
There is no resolution of SIDs in
ACLs because when you authenticate, a
system token is created by the server, associated with the user
connecting and it contains all SIDs this user is a member of or
represents, thus ACL checks are done directly using SIDs.
