DN is ldap for Distingished Name

e.g. a user could have an entry in the directory:
  dn: CN=vladimir, CN=Users,DC=samba,DC=com

just add:
  uidNumber: 3000022
somewhere for that user. The easiest way to do that so that you can 
understand what's happening, is to add it like this:

ldbedit --url=/usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb CN=vladimir

That will use vi. If you don't know vi, use your favourite editor (e.g. 
let's say it's called 'yfe') instead:

ldbedit -e yfe --url=/usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb CN=vladimir
