This is only necessary if you wish to manipulate the rfc2307 attributes
from the Unix tab in windows. Otherwise the samba4 schema supports all
of 2307 as it stands from the cli on the DC. For users:
samba-tool user add --help
will get you there.
For groups, you'll have to add the gidNumber attribute yourself. ldbedit
or ldbmodify will do it.
