Question1: An uidNumber can be given to a new user by "samba-tool user add <
user.name> --uid-number=<number>". But is there a way to make samba
autogenerate it without me having to give a specific number?

Question2: The output of wbinfo --user-info <user.name>
DOMAIN\user.name:*:3000015:100:Full Name:/home/DOMAIN/user.name:/bin/false
>From what i understood the uidNumber should take the 3rd value from the
above output (3000015). Is this value hold into any attribute
like sAMAccountName, displayName, mail, etc.?

PS: My samba version is 4.3.11-Ubuntu
