Hello Björn, 

I can totaly agree with that, having multiple users with the same id isnt what we want,
but samba needs at some point root rights, for creating folders/files. 
Now we have a "chicken and the egg problem" which one comes first?

At install of samba files and folders are created, by root. 
when installed, started samba and now we can assign a uid/gid to Administrator. 
But at this point Administrator cannot change files/folders owned by root.. 
the installation script ended, and we dont know the correct uid/gids. 

So for all the default users and groups in the AD i really suggest we do assign dedicated uid/gids. 

wbinfo -g
domain admins
domain users
domain guests
domain computers
enterprise admins
group policy creator owners

wbinfo -u

I remove some the not needed users/groups, as far is i know. 
imo, above should al have a dedicate uid/gid. 

so when all of the above do have dedicated uid/gid, we can assign the needed folders and files
at install which need one of the above user/groups. 

and this wil help also in the development of samba in replicated sysvol. 

And big thanks for having a look!
