is the RID formula built into Samba or do I need to populate the field
myself? And why is it not used for users, I thought the RID is used for
file ownership/rights assignment? Sorry for the confusion :)

RID is equal to (UID*2)+1000. This is required for machine accounts,
not needed for user accounts. If the RID is incorrect, the machine will
be able to join the doma. PrimaryGID is the id of the primary group
account is in. You will need to create a group (posixGroup schema).
