Hi Bjorn,
You can recommend not doing something until you are blue in the face,
but you will not stop people doing it. ;-)

If you give Domain Admins a gidNumber, it breaks the mapping in
idmap.ldb and stops Domain Admins being able to own files and dirs in
sysvol and Domain Admins needs to own files and dirs in sysvol.
