If you are using ADUC on windows 10, there is no Unix Attributes tab,
if you are using any other version of windows, you need to install
IDMU, see here:


This does depend on you adding the option '--use-rfc2307' to the
provision command, but if you didn't, you can add it later, see here:

If you need to have the same IDs everywhere you need to do the

For a windows user to be a Unix user as well, you need to add
a uidNumber attribute.
You also need to give 'Domain Users' a gidNumber attribute, if you do
not do this and use winbind, you will not get any Unix users.

These 'uidNumber' and 'gidNumber' attributes are NOT created
automatically, it needs to be a manual action.
