If you want to have the same UIDs & GIDs everywhere, the only option is 
to use RFC2307 attributes and the winbind 'ad' backend on Unix domain 
members (note: a 'member server' is just a domain member that serves 
files, printers etc)
You only need to give your users & groups a uidNumber or gidNumber 
attribute, there is no need to give the BUILTIN users & groups a 
uidNumber or gidNumber.
