Thanks for the hint - this is my first samba setup and I got the idmap 
configuration from a guide I found online and used it without looking 
into the rid backend.

I would configure the UID & GIDs via RSAT-Tools - but how can I 
configure the client (terminal server) to use them?

Both the server and the client are running Debian Wheezy.

Kind regards,
