If you don't want to add anything to AD and you can live with all your
users having the same login shell and Unix home directory, then the
winbind rid backend is a good choice. If you are going to use more
than one Unix domain member as a fileserver, then you will probably be
better off using the winbind ad backend, this way you can ensure your
users and groups have the same ID everywhere.
