The '3000013' is not a uidNumber, it is an 'xidNumber' and these are 
only used on a DC and unless you sync 'idmap.ldb' from the first DC to 
all other DC's, you cannot guarantee getting the same ID on all DC's

uidNumber attributes are not added automatically, you must add them 
manually, same goes for gidNumber attributes.
