Still fail:

Used pdbedit to remove the previous user wynkoop

used samba-tool to add user wynkoop with specific UID and GID

I then connected as user wynkoop with smbclient and uploaded a file
to /archive/test

root at prd2:/usr/local/etc # samba-tool user add wynkoop --gid-number=34
- --uid=34 --gecos="Brett Wynkoop" --login-shell=/usr/local/bin/bash
- --home-directory=/home/wynkoop New Password: Retype Password: 
Processing section "[netlogon]"
Processing section "[sysvol]"
Processing section "[archive]"
pm_process() returned Yes
You are setting a Unix/RFC2307 UID or GID. You may want to set
'idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = Yes' to use those attributes for
XID/SID-mapping. User 'wynkoop' created successfully

Needless to say where it says 3000011 I expect it to see wynkoop since
I am in the local password file on that system with UID 34.

If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army 
pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and 
gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.
