Just what it says. I don't remember if you said what the AD DC is, but
it doesn't really matter, if you create a user using ADUC or
samba-tool, the user will just be a Windows user. That is unless you
also use the UNIX Attributes tab on ADUC or specify the RFC2307
attributes with 'samba-tool user add'.
The minimum requirement for a Unix AD user is that they must have a
uidNumber attribute containing a unique number inside the range you
set in smb.conf (now do you see why I asked about the range starting
at '1' ?) AND 'Domain Users'(the default user primary group) must have
a gidNumber attribute inside the same range. You are also using
'unix_primary_group = yes', so your users should also have gidNumber
attribute containing the gidNumber of a group.

It take it you haven't done any of the above, so you may want to
consider using the 'rid' backend instead. I would suggest you read
the wiki pages I pointed you to earlier.
