Have you considered reading the Samba wiki ?
Your 'idmap config' block should look similar to this:
# Default idmap config used for BUILTIN and local accounts/groups
idmap config *:backend = tdb
idmap config *:range = 2000-9999
# idmap config for domain SAMDOM
idmap config DOMAIN:backend = ad
idmap config DOMAIN:schema_mode = rfc2307
idmap config DOMAIN:range = 10000-99999
# Use template settings for login shell and home directory
winbind nss info = template
template shell = /nfs/homes/%U/.default_shell
template homedir = /nfs/homes/%U
Though as you seem to be using uidNumber & gidNumber attributes, you
could also store the loginShell and unixHomedir in AD as well.
