Before doing so...this server is live...I read a long article on the 
rfc2307 yesterday and my understanding of it was you would only put this 
in your domain configs IF the backend AD had the rfc configuration and 
held the unix uid's, etc..that this would tell samba to look to AD for 
those values (which concerns me to put that in and break all the 
existing users) and we certainly do not have that in our AD here.  Is 
that your understanding of it?  Honestly after reading that article I 
considered taking that out of my config altogether as I didn't think it 
had any real purpose.  I put it IN based on another persons smb.conf 
that had been helpful in solving an auth issue I had early on.
