I start a new thread, because the other one meanwhile drifted far away 
from what the OP asked. :-)

I rechecked this. My test environment was provisioned on 4.0.5 with 
"--use-rfc2307" (I'm sure I did, because without that option, you also 
doesn't have the cn=ypServ30,cn=RpcServices,cn=System,... subtree).

And I can confirm that new users doesn't get the 
"objectclass:posixAccount" entry. Also new added groups doesn't have 

The "unix attributes" tab in ADUC (W7) is there and works fine on users. 
On groups I can set values. But if I re-open this tab again, I get 
"Unwilling to perform".

Does anybody have an idea on that? Do posixAccount/posixGroup 
objectClasses have to be there normally?
