You don't have to add the rfc2307 options to get an AD user to be a Unix 
user on a Unix domain member, you only need them if you want your users 
& groups to have the same ID's on all Unix domain members and to be able 
to set login shells and Unix home directories per user. If you have only 
one domain, then you can use the winbind 'rid' backend and your ID's 
will be calculated from the accounts windows RID, or if you have trusted 
domains, you can use the 'autorid' backend, which works in a similar way.
