As long as you are using RFC2307 attributes for UID/GID, you can sidestep 
the windbind problem entirely by using SSSD:


I will admit that I haven't tested running a DC and fileserver on the same 
machine using this method, but I don't see any reason it shouldn't work. 
My understanding of the issue is just that the DC's internal winbind is 
incomplete, so the file permissions will not work properly.  Using SSSD 
should avoid that problem.
