Your ranges are really wrong, '100-9999' for the 'NIS' (and this is a
stupid name) range, but I think it shows something strange, if I run
'id rowland' on a Unix domain member, I get:

uid=10000(rowland) gid=10000(domain users) groups=10000(domain

My 'idmap config' lines are similar to yours, but, as you can see, the
users 'gid' is 'gid=10000(domain users)', yours is 'gid=20(games)', how
is this possible ? '20' is outside the '100-9999' range.

Do you have users & groups in AD and in /etc/passwd & /etc/group ?
What is the OS
What is the Active directory DC ?
