Synchronizing uids on deferent machines running winbind

 I've a small Linux network, NFS amd NIS server with three clients. Each machine is running winbind to connect to a windows 2000 domain. All is working fine, I just have a problem synchronizing the uids generated by the winbind to a windows user that logs on to the Linux network. For example, on one machine a user can get uid 10000 and on another machine the same user can have uid 10001.

 Is there a way to sync these uids between the Linux machine? 
 Can I use the NIS server to do the winbind connection and update the NIS database so that the Linux clients wouldn't have to run the winbind service?
