That will not work, you need the framework that Samba AD provides and 
the Unix Attributes tabs (which win10 no longer has) to get RFC2307 
attributes added automatically.

Can I introduce you to the concept of using the command line to create 
users and groups, you can use scripts around samba-tool or ADMan or 
various other methods that are available, it is usually faster than 
using Windows.
