"samba-tool user add: error: no such option --uid-number"
(this is from samba 4.0.8)

But even if it worked it could be an option if it was me managing the
users/groups (though I'm not keen on manually keeping track of uids when
currently "ldap account manager" does it for me), unfortunately I have
to delegate that function to somebody less technically inclined (and
even with LAM they managed to do some bad things).
I tried ADUC (again, in a test VM joined to the domain), which could be
suitable, but I couldn't see any unix tab (and if I have to manually
assign uids/gids there it's not an option).
