[Samba] Samba3 capable of AD auth. without matching Linux users?

Thanks Marc. In fact the localhost was just a precaution and I was never
sure of it, I even tried resolving localhost to make sure it worked after I
made the change.

I will test idmap backend ad later, because I think what made it all work
for me was setting up NSS. Now that NSS is setup I can even run id ad-user
in the cli and get all the information from AD. So it seems more integrated
now and I have a better understanding of NSS.

I was under the impression that rid converted the SIDs into valid UIDs and
GIDs. But if I am, as now, only needing it for authentication and now for
IO to the FS then I should logically not require the local UIDs/GIDs.
