Thanks for the information,
I am unclear how to implement the winbind 'rid' backend. I've identified that winbindd is not operating on my demo server (fresh installation of Ubuntu 16), and am looking for some assistance if possible.
1] 'apt-get install winbind' informs me that the package is already installed (v4.3.9), yet it is not operating;

3] To start winbindd I visited this site https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1865647 which informed to run 'net ads join -U administrator' with my own id, which returns:
'Joined 'SMB-SRV-001' to dns domain 'domain' No DNS domain configured for SMB-SRV. Unable to perform DNS update. DNS update failed: NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER'
Upon review of the  winbindd is still not implemented, and I would like to know how to get it running, as from my understanding it is part of the samba package, and I will require it.

Because you are using 2012R2 it will be a little harder, but it should be do-able. See here:
Because of 2012R2 (no IDMU), you will need to use the winbind 'rid'
