The DCs have idmap.ldb, this maps users and groups to xidNumbers in the
'3000000' range, the only way to change these numbers on a DC, is to
give your users & groups uidNumber & gidNumber attributes.

I repeat, adding the 'idmap config' lines that are used on a domain
member, to a DC, will not work.

They do nothing, zilch, they are ignored, so do not add them.

The 'Unix Attributes' tab uses the 'uidNumber' and 'gidNumber'
attributes and these override the 'xidNumber' attributes that the DC
uses by default.
