Yes, I know what it is.  No, I did not use it.  I use LDAP, and I did all of 
my entries in LDAP directly, skipping the Samba layer.  It may have been the 
wrong way, but it is done and I have a fully running domain that has been 
running for more than 6 months that way.  I do not even use smbpasswd now, 
but smbldap-tools.

Are you telling me that smbpasswd will change the RIDs for already-existing 
Samba users?  I did not know that.

I get the feeling I have really frustrated you.  Sorry.
