Surely the above line is required to obtain consistent UID, SID and name
mappings on all servers?

Can the OP try adding it to their DC2, restarting services, and check again?

I was sure from the docs is that rfc2307 is the standard way of mapping
UIDs/GIDs stored in AD to Unix UID/GIDs,,,

I have the same line on all my DCs and member servers with nsswitch.conf
having passwd and group as "files winbind". That is the right way to do
it isn't it?
