I think I am still at a loss.  after having a look at that page I added 

        idmap uid = 34-1000

to the smb4.conf file.  I then deleted user wynkoop, restarted samba
and added user wynkoop again.  The UID incremented from where it had
previously been.  Just to make sure I did the whole delete and add
again another time.  The results of uploading files from smbclient are

root at prd2:/usr/local/etc # ls -l /archive/test
total 5
-rw-r--r--  1 3000014  wheel  6148 Feb 22 03:37 .DS_Store
-rw-r--r--  1 3000013  wheel   381 Feb 26 22:55 bar
-rw-r--r--  1 3000012  wheel   381 Feb 26 22:45 foo
-rw-r--r--  1 3000011  wheel   381 Feb 26 18:18 profile
root at prd2:/usr/local/etc # 

Do I need to totally wipe out the DB to get it to start at 34?  If I do
that what good is the option to samba-tool to specify a certain GID?
