I never claimed anything ;-)
I just asked a question and you have answered it, you don't have the
required attributes in AD for the 'ad' backend to work.

It sounds like you need to use the 'rid' backend, this will work
without adding anything to AD.

The problem with your old smb.conf working, but not your new one, is
hard to understand because the requirements haven't really changed. It
might help if you could post your old smb.conf
