Hi Marc,

I tried using Samba version 4.3 without much success. I still was not able
to control what the local sid of the machine was.

To install 4.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS I needed to use the following ppa:

I also tried changing to the smb.conf to "SERVER ROLE = CLASSIC PRIMARY
DOMAIN CONTROLLER on my 4.1.6 and 4.3 version. This also did not help me
control what the local sid was.

I feel like I'm some important fundamental elements of how the domain sid,
and local sid are created, used and modified. Perhaps you or someone here
can elaborate on this?
