If you are using a DC as a fileserver, you can forget all the RFC2307
attributes except for the uidNumber & gidNumber (--uid-number & --gid-
number), none of the others are used on a DC.
So then I think I need something like this. "sudo samba-tool user create username password --unix-home=/home/username --uid-number=something --gid-number=something" Does this look correct? I'm not sure where the uid and gid values come from.
