Samba RIDs are calculated automatically on the basis of posixAccount or
account uidNumbers/gid/Numbers and will always be unique.

I don't use the idealx scripts for anything, I write my own shell stuff
to generate first the posixAccount, then the sambaSamAccount (using
smbpasswd). For both users and machinessmbpasswd always guarantees
unique RIDs.
