not have that many users. Is there possibly a way to add a script that runs
on user creation that will find the first free ID in a range and set it for
that user's uidNumber and gidNumber?
One idea is to create a script that uses samba-tool to first create a
useraccount and then add uid- and gidnumber extracted from the last part of
the SID plus your rangestart with ldbmodify(?).


PS. Glad you found the solution.
