Here is a working copy as an attachment. I will also fix the blog post I
have up about it.
Keep in mind it does require a couple of tools installed to function
Also a note on how it works. It uses wbinfo to detect any account in
active directory which does not have the unix extension properties for
the uid,gid,default shell, homedir, as well as any DN attribute which
uses first name last name, (DN=first last,CN=Users) which seems to cause
problems with the UID 2 SID verification process, and modifies only
Using 'wizard' mode will allow you to test it on one account and once
that works you can specify a OU within Active Directory and this will
perform the operations on any account which fails the UID 2 SID
Let me know if you experience any problems with it.
