[Samba] Samba 4.2.0 rc2 and winbindd, uid-/gidNumber and xidNumber

Trying out 4.2.0 rc2 and winbindd. Below is the AD DC's smb.conf.
Samba on the AD DC is updated from 4.1.3.
I'm having trouble getting uid-/gidNumbers. Just xidNumbers are
displayed. All domain account and groups have got it assigned. What
did I miss?

Is it possible that the outcome from the commands run on the AD DC is
a product from the fact that the domains NetBIOS-name is EXAMPLE and
not the left-most part of the dns domain (SAMDOM)? Any ideas


Outcome from command ran on both the AD DC and a member server:
root at dc1:/usr/local/samba# id davor
uid=3000023(davor) gid=100(users)
root at dc1:/usr/local/samba# getent passwd davor
davor:*:3000023:100:Davor Vusir:/home/%D/%U:/bin/false
root at dc1:/usr/local/samba# getent group 'Domain Users'
domain users:x:100:

Member server:
admind at ostraaros:~$ id davor
uid=11105(davor) gid=10513(domain users) groups=10513(domain
admind at ostraaros:~$ getent passwd davor
admind at ostraaros:~$ getent group 'Domain Users'
domain users:x:10513:
