Changing the above ranges made no difference. However, changing backend
= rid gets me:

root at srv2:~# getent passwd administrator
root at srv2:~# id user1
uid=10000(user1) gid=1013(domain users) groups=1013(domain
root at srv2:~# id user2
uid=10001(user2) gid=1013(domain users) groups=1013(domain

That seems to be working perfectly. What would I be losing without
rfc2307 (please excuse the ignorance)?
