If you use the winbind 'ad' backend, then your users must have a unique
uidNumber attribute and Domain Users (at least) a gidNumber attribute.
These attributes must be inside the range you set in smb.conf

You can however use the winbind 'rid' backend and this does not require
adding anything to AD.

Have a look at LAM, (LDAP Account Manager)

That would only work if the user or group already has a

Don't think this will work.

Probably not.

The RFC2307 attributes are stored in AD and as such are replicated to
all DC's

Don't think I need to answer this, mainly because what you are
proposing isn't going to work.

Why don't you use the attributes that ADUC uses, 'msSFU30MaxUidNumber'
and 'msSFU30MaxGidNumber', I am very sure that you will be able to add
'ypServ30.ldif' (it appears to be what IDMU used.
