You will have to, that user is a Unix system user and has nothing to do 
with AD and shouldn't appear in AD. I think you need to describe just 
what you are trying to do.

Then something isn't set up correctly, this is from a DC:

root at dc4:~# getent group 'Domain Admins'
SAMDOM\domain admins:x:3000010:

Do you have these packages installed:

libpam-winbind libpam-krb5 libnss-winbind

Do the passwd & group lines in /etc/nsswitch.conf look like this:

passwd:         compat winbind
group:          compat winbind
