Hi Simo,

Thanks for your reply. Good old Google pointed me to
https://github.com/rtrouton/rtrouton_scripts/blob/master/rtrouton_scripts/open-ldap_bind_script/Mac_OpenLDAP_bind_script.sh,
which gave me the idea of
updating the RealName mapping to displayName. This solved the problem, I'll
have to recreate the permissions for every share, but the user names now
show up, and stick. No more UIDs.
