[Samba] Moving to AD for idmap backend

Hello Samba listers

We're looking at moving to idmap backend AD for our Samba domain member servers

One concern I had is our corporation assigns uid for users in one corp sub-domain (A.X.com) interspersed with users from our other corp sub-domain (B.X.com) so that the range must be overlapping

Some testing by a colleague shows Samba notes the overlap in the log but seems to work fine

Can someone say if this should be fine, allowing that corp makes sure the uid are all unique in AD?
