OK, if you are logging into a domain member, then you need to use 
RFC2307 attributes, see here:


I take it you are creating the users with ADUC, if you use samba-tool on 
the DC, you can add the required attributes when you create a new user, 
type 'samba-tool user create --help' in a terminal on the DC for more info.
