You've set Administrator to uid 3000000 in AD? More likely, the 3000000
is derived from the SID S-1-5-32-544, set as builtin\administrators in
idmap.ldb. In that same db, Administrator with RID 500 is indeed set as

My recommendation would be to set whatever uid you wish for all your
users in AD and always pull the information from there. This is effected
by adding the uidNumber attribute to the domain user. Windows doesn't
care what it is.

We may be able to help more if you can post more information such as
samba version and smb.conf.
