OK, you probably have something like this in smb.conf:

     idmap config EXAMPLE : backend = ad
     idmap config EXAMPLE : range = 10000-999999
     idmap config EXAMPLE : schema_mode = rfc2307

Where 'EXAMPLE' will be your domain name and '10000-999999' is your range.

If you do not want to add 'uidNumber' & 'gidNumber' attributes to AD, 
change the 3 lines to this:

     idmap config EXAMPLE : backend = rid
     idmap config EXAMPLE : range = 10000-999999

Restart samba services and the ID numbers will be allocated for you.
