There has to be a first time and this is it, the rid backend isn't
working, but why ?

Is winbind installed and running ?
is sssd installed and running ?
can you post the contents of /etc/nsswitch.conf ?

The 'rid' backend uses the Windows Accounts RID to calculate the
Unix ID's, so if winbind is running, the computer is joined to the
domain and /etc/nsswitch.conf is setup correctly, it should work.
