It all depends on what version of Windows you are running RSAT on, If
you are using a version before Win10, you can add the Unix attributes
tab and set the uidNumber there. Windows 10 doesn't have the Unix
attributes tab, it has been removed, so you would have to use the
attribute editor.
If you want to do this on the Samba DC, then you can create new users
with the required rfc2307 attributes using 'samba-tool user create'.
If you want to add rfc2307 attributes, then you will have to write your
own scripts, there are no Samba tools to do this.
