I have update the wiki page:


an info box to be precise, it now says:

The RFC2307 attributes (|uidNumber|, |gidNumber|, etc) are not added 
automatically when users or groups are created, you must add them manually.

Does that answer your question ? ;-)

I should also add, you must give Domain Users a gidNumber and all 
numbers used must be inside the DOMAIN range you set in smb.conf.
