Actually that was only what I was using to poke around at the system. 
Not having to do anything and still get consistent results AD-wide would 
be even better ;-)

I was (locally) running out of time when I wrote the first message so 
re-reading it I see that it was not totally coherent, but the hint to 
samba-tool user add was already very helpful in setting up a user with 
proper attributes. Being able to get manually to a good state is still 
better than having no (automatic;) way at all.

Many thanks!
