This isn't a Samba product, I suggest you contact the author directory.

I fixed my problem with his gitlab page, my adblocker was blocking parts 
of it ;-)

I do not know, I have never used it, but I can see no reason why it 
wouldn't be.

You do not have a PDC, you just have a number of DCs, so you should be 
able to install this on any of the DCs. In fact, provided the next 
uidNumber & gidNumber is stored in AD, you should be able to install it 
on all DCs.
