Yes all UID/GID numbers stored in the AD user objects are unique and
start at 10000. Both attributes are set for all users.

Removed too. What's wrong with that line? My understanding was that it
tells samba to use the system's global keytab. I don't see much harm in

So now that I have a valid smb.conf - the initial problem persists. How
do I proceed to resolve this issue?
