As mentioned before:

"rid" is only chosen because I switched to that while trying to make
things work. No decision made here.

And the numbers: same. Just copy and paste from the wiki, no choice made.

So that scares me again. rm-ing users from /etc/passwd will now change
their UIDs because it gets them from winbindd/AD then?

In passwd I have UIDs up from 1000 as usual.

I don't *have* to maintain the old UIDs, the admin there is perfectly
happy if we start over with new ones and just do the initial "chown" and
"chmod" if needed .... they just share one fat share within one group
basically (sounds like overkill, right? ;-) )

gives me:

 Failed to grant privileges for ARBEITSGRUPPE\Domain Admins

is "rpc" correct here?
