If you are using the 'ad' backend for the main domain on a Unix domain
member, then you will have a line similar to this:
idmap config DOMAIN : range = 10000-199999
Provided Domain Users has a gidNumber attribute containing a number
inside the range set in smb.conf (10000-199999 above) and the users have
a uidNumber attribute containing a unique number in the same range, then
they should be found by getent. Any uidNumber attributes containing
numbers outside the range will be ignored.
