[Samba] Samba winbind backend to AD

Hello everyone

We are using Samba as AD domain members right now (Solaris and Red Hat Linux) and the UNIX posix data is stored in a UNIX LDAP (Oracle OUD)

Since we have to start using winbind we were thinking to either move the UNIX posix data to AD or possibly use backend rfc2307 to use the existing LDAP?

Can rfc2307 backend use a ldaps uri?

In either case will we be able to maintain our current uid/gid assignments (which start at 490 and 225 respectively) or does this possible 'clash' with system and local accounts cause a problem?

Everywhere I look seems to indicate it is important to have set ranges that don't overlap for winbind
