Thanks for all answers,

I've added unix attributes to user foo by usnig ldbmodify and it appears 
on getent passwd (with idmap backend = ad), I've done same with my 
"domain users" group (added only gidNumber attribute) but it don't 
appear with getent group, but with 'getent group "domain users"' the 
group appears fine.... may be a bug between getent, nss and winbind....

At last.... it works (except 'getent group'... but chown, chgrp, ... 
works) !

Thanks all
