Based on later comments, this would more accurately be:
    add: gidNumber
    gidNumber: 10000 # whatever Unix GID you gave to "Domain Users"
                     # Actually: Can be whatever you want, but don't
                     # change the primaryGroupID from the "Domain
                     # Users" gid or Things Will Break
