Not sure I understand what you are saying, but you seem to be saying
you have a Windows 2008R2 server running as an AD DC, is this correct ?

If this is correct, your plan to validate users that are in /etc/passwd
isn't going to work. You cannot have users in /etc/passwd and AD, if
they are in /etc/passwd they are local users and have nothing to do
with AD and if they are in AD, they are AD users but can also be local

If your computer is joined to the domain, you need to use winbind, so
just what problems did you have ?
