Hi Jelmer, If you create a user in ADUC and add the Unix attributes, 
this is done totally differently to the way that samba-tool does it. For 
instance,  '--uid-number' requires that you give a 'uidNumber' but ADUC 
(provided AD is setup correctly) supplies it automatically, samba-tool 
also doesn't add all the attributes that ADUC does.
