if you have, for instance, a user called 'fred' in /etc/passwd and a 
user also called 'fred' in AD, delete the user in /etc/passwd. The same 
goes for groups.

Unless you are referring to local system users with an ID of less than 
1000 (e.g. sshd), then move them to the range where they belong, 1000 

I asked what docs you have been following, you never said, but I think 
it is the outdated ones, try reading here:
