I did, that is why I am bringing this up. In the "Testing" section:

#id Administrator
uid=0(root) gid=100(users) groupes=0(root),100(users),3000004(Group 
Policy Creator Owners),3000008(Domain Admins)

ID Administrator is not duplicated with the user name in the system.
However, "abcde", which is already in my system with uid 1000, and the 
one created by the samba-tool is with uid 300018.
When I
$id abcde
, I get abcde from the system but not from the samba4. Furthermore, 
files created via samba by the uid 300018 is not deletable by user uid 1000.
