The problem is, how do I get the posix information into samba4? With
samba 3 I could manage users and groups with ldap account manager and
they got both samba and posix attributes. Another nice thing is that I
could script the creation of home directory, mailbox, etc.
I though that samba 4 allowed me to do the same, but with windows
administrative client (ADUC?)

I'd like to avoid winbind if at all possible
