The op tells us :
idmap config *:backend = tdb
idmap config *:range = 100-2000
# idmap config for domain MYDOMAIN
idmap config MYDOMAIN:backend = ad
idmap config MYDOMAIN:schema_mode = rfc2307
idmap config MYDOMAIN:range = 4000-99999
I dont know the OS here, but what happens if uid 100 is a linux system users.
Then it also maps into BUILTIN\username
You might check need to check this out also.
