ah, ok, yes that was it..  ;-)  

so for my understanding. 

we use AD backend if we also want to use the RFC2307 extention (with winbind and schema_mode rfc2307) 
and we can use RID if we want the windows user id with winbind.

and for RID we can use the server templete settings 
and for AD can can set this per user seen the the Unix Attibutes tab in the windows tool

correct?  (I still done understand the main difference between AD and RID.) 

i just did read both man's but that does not make it more clear for me.
