Well, you could try walking up to the DC and giving it a good talking to 

But seriously, your choices are a bit limited, you can use ADUC on a 
windows machine, this involves creating a user and then adding the 
required attributes with the UNIX attributes tab. You could create your 
users with samba-tool, but you will need the latest samba 4 to get all 
the required attributes and you will still have to keep a record of the 
uidNumbers & gidNumbers you have used, samba-tool will not do this. 
Other than this, you can write your own scripts in your favourite 
computer language.
