It used to be thought that using such low numbers wasn't a problem, but
time has shown otherwise ;-)

The problem is that Linux uses numbers below 1000 for system users &
groups and then starts local users & groups at 1000, there is then the
problem of the BUILTIN users & groups and users & groups from outside
the domain. You could add them after the range for the domain, but if
the range chosen is too low, it could interfere with the domain range if
this grows too large. So, the advice is to allow a range above 3000
but below 10000 for the BUILTIN etc domain and then start the AD
domain users & groups at 10000 (which is where Windows started them)

Of course this only really comes into play if you have any Unix domain
members. If nobody actually logs into the DC and you only store things
in shares and access them from windows, you might as well stick to the
xidNumbers in idmap.ldb (i.e. the 3000000 numbers) 

Whether you can do anything about this now, sort of depends on
how many users you have and if you really want to fix it ;-)

If you do want to fix it and only use windows (the zentyal DC is the
only Unix machine) then just remove the uidNumber & gidNumber
attributes, but you will need to fix file ownership.

Yes, that confirms it, see above.
