more precision on what I am asking:
In fact what I really need is to run a command instead of the samba user 
For the moment we are running 2 DC (S4 beta2 + s3fs), we are creating users in 
batch mode from a SQL table, and before adding users, a script take care to 
sync the xidNumber by taking the max from each DC. When the user is created, 
it check that the uid/gid is the same on each node otherwise the user is 
deleted and the creation for that user is delayed. If one of the node is not 
ready, the user will be created on the next run of the script. I've tested the 
creation of 1000 users without any problem.

I would like to run the same procedure but for one user added via dsa.msc.
(we are redirecting a lot of folders so I need more than the home dir as 

Is it possible to place a hook on the samba user add command ?
