If nslcd wants to work with AD, it has to play by AD rules, and AD does 
not use the posix objectclasses. If you want proof of this, create a 
user with samba-tool, go to a windows pc with ADUC and add the posix 
attributes. Now go back to the samba4 AD DC and examine the users DN, 
you will not find the posix objectclasses, but you will find uidNumber etc.
