The SID number is configured in /etc/smbldap-tools/smbldap.conf

smbldap-tools comes with a script to assist in the basic configuration 
of the tools. It's called "configure.pl" in most versions but the name 
was recently changed to "smbldap-config.pl"

At least in RedHat-alike distros, the script resides in 
/usr/share/doc/smbldap-tools-x.x.x, where x.x.x is your particular 
version. Current version is 0.9.7-1.
