No attachment found, but if you want to use a windows machine to 
administrate domain linux clients then you need the SFU attributes, 
these are standard after windows server 2003R2 and are included with 
Samba4 but you need to either provision with --use-rfc2307 or later add 
the 'ypServ30.ldif'. You may then have a problem getting the UNIX 
Attributes tab to show in RSAT, a quick google should find you the way 
to sort that problem.
