[Samba] migrating from Samba 3 PDC to W2008 AD

I already can successfully join Samba 3 (3.3.x) server to AD domain and setup winbind service to see
domain users on linux server.
The main problem for me is that I want to save all already existing uids and gids on linux server
without any change.
Firstly, I can map domain user to unix user with "username map" option
vova = CORP\vova
But this trick doesn't work for groups, only for users.
But even this doesn't work for next share definition:
write list = +CORP\testgroup
force create mode = 0660
force directory mode = 2770
force group = +CORP\testgroup
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 2770
Domain user vova is member of domain group testgroup, so he would get access to share but when he is
mapped to unix user vova (with "username map" option), he wouldn't. So "username map" looks useless
for my problem.
I tried other methods of mapping accounts (net groupmap; wbinfo --set-gid-mapping) but they all
Also I don't want to setup LDAP backend only for this mapping.
I struggle with this already some days, but still can't get solution and clean answer. Is this
possible to join Samba to AD domain while saving local uids and gids? Or it's easier to just
"rechown" all files on server?
Thank you all.
