That was the old way, if you are using AD, you do not need Unix users
in /etc/passwd and in fact, you should not have users in
both /etc/passwd and AD.
To make an AD user a Unix user, either add RFC2307 attributes to the
users object in AD and then use the winbind 'ad' backend, or use the
'rid' backend, in which case you do not have to add anything to AD.
Can you also stop sending email directly to me and CCing the list, just
send to the list.
