[Samba] How to Change UIDs

I am using Winbind and Samba to tie in Linux VMs with a Windows DC for
authentication. The UIDs are automatically assigned when I create a new
user in Active Directory.

I need to manually change the UIDs of my users to a UID that is used on
another network so they can access a specific share. How can I change the
UID successfully and still be able to authenticate with the DC. Also, how
can I manually assign UIDs in the future for new users?

I am using Samba version 4.8
samba-winbind version 4.8

My smb.conf is below:

workgroup = DOMAIN
password server = server.domain.com
realm = DOMIAN.com
security = ads
idmap config * : range = 3000-9999
idmap config * : backend = rid
idmap config DOMAIN : range = 10000-19999
idmap config DOMAIN : backend = rid
allow trusted domain = no
template shell = /bin/bash
kerberos method = secrets only
winbind use default domain = true
winbind offline logon = false
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
winbind refresh tickets = yes
encrypt passwords = yes
restrict anonymous = 2
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
