Yes, you can use ADUC but you need to have provisioned samba4 with
You can also add the uidNumber & gidNumber with an ldif and ldapmodify or
ldbmodify. Have a look here:

Without the uidNumber & gidNumber, using the ad backend, Winbind will not
display any users, with uidNumber & gidNumber, Winbind will only display
the users & groups that have them.

If you do not want to enter the uidNumber etc, have a look at sssd, this
will do all that Winbind does without all the hassle.
