You are using RFC2307 on the clients, but do you have the users RFC2307
info in AD? (msSFU30NisDomain, msSFU30Name, uidNumber, gidNumber,
loginShell, unixHomeDirectory, uid).
If you want to get all the RFC2307 info from AD using Samba, then the
machine needs to joined to the domain (like a windows pc) and you need
to use something to pull this info, with winbind this means 'backend =
ad', but you can use sssd or nslcd.
