Is 'massaro' one of your existing users carried over by the
classicupgrade ?
If it is, then you are not getting the expected output.
The number '3000027' comes from 'idmap.ldb' and not from AD.
If it isn't, try again with a user carried over by the classicupgrade.

It also shows two potential problems that come from using a DC as a
fileserver, any Unix home dirs & login shells stored in AD are not
used. All users get the home dir '/home/DOMAIN/username' and the login
shell '/bin/false' i.e. they cannot log into the DC.

Good, just checking that you were not starting all the Samba deamons.
