To use the 'ad' backend on a member server, your users need to have a
'uidNumber' attribute in AD and Domain Users (at least) needs to have a
gidNumber attribute in AD. These numbers need to be inside the range you
set in smb.conf.
The 'rid' backend does not require anything in AD, the ID numbers are
calculated for you, using an algorithm based on the range you set in
