I see, yes the unix attributes are set on the AD DC (RFC2307) for each 
users and each groups.

And that's a question, because I am using a Windows Server 2012 R2 as AD DC.
Does the unix attibutes will be still available in the Windows Server 
2019 version ?
I don't talk about the ADUC and how to set unix attributes tab, I ask 
about the attributes on the AD schema
because I know that NIS and unix attributes tab  in ADUC is deprecated 
in Windows server 2016, but it can still be set via a powershell script.
