[Samba] samba4: samba-tool and (unix) uids

at my universities CS computer pools we're trying to migrate our
samba3 based NT domain to AD with samba4-rc1.
In the past we had a little script which our users could run on their
own from their linux account which created a samba user with
their own uid/gid and set their password (via smbpasswd).
We're trying to recreate this behaviour with "samba-tool user create" but we couldn't
find a parameter to set the mapping SID <-> uid.
Without the correct mapping we can't get the users profile/home permissions right.
Will we have to manually correct the private/idmap.ldb each time we
add a user or are we missing something? Is it save to edit the idmap on
With kind regards,
