I'm studing samba as PDC (with ldap backend) and I would know:
- gid and uid are useful in samba? in other words: if pdc admin knows users' 
uids, he can recovery some wrong situations ?
Example: if a user was cancelled and then readded, if his uid changes implies 
some troubles with shared files?

NT mantains, after deletion, association between shared file and uid user and 
so if admin readded user with the same uid the system "restore" the right
