Correct. You have to make sure that the DC's use _only_ AD to pull the 
rfc2307 stuff.

It will not work from a windows box because there is no way to fill in 
the rfc2307 attributes. I believe Géza has a a script for this however.

Samba4 will pull only uidNumber and gidNumber from AD. If you need the 
whole of rfc2307 then you will need to use the scripts you quoted. (as a 
basis: they are local to my domain only).

You are nearly there:) Good luck,
