You could add the group to AD and map it to the Linux group and
depending on how your smb.conf is set up, it may get its own RID. Note
it is 'RID' not 'SID', the 'SID' is the the first part of the long ID
that starts with 'S-1-5-21', the 'RID' is the last part of this ID. An
example SID-RID is S-1-5-21-1768301897-3342589593-1064908849-3601, the
'S-1-5-21-1768301897-3342589593-1064908849' identifies the domain and
'3601' is the unique number that identifies the object.

The very fact that you think 'SID=2*UID+1000' is still valid, probably
means that you have RIDs like 513 and 3010 in ldap. Time has shown that
using such low numbers wasn't a good idea.

It may be better to start with a new AD domain, rather than upgrading
your old NT4-style domain.
