Where did 'domusers' come from ?
By default all users are members of 'Domain Users' and this is the
group you should have given '10000' to.

root@dc4:~# getent passwd rowland
root@dc4:~# getent group 10000
SAMDOM\domain users:x:10000:

> "users" (100),

This is from idmap.ldb where 'Domain Users' is mapped to the Unix group
'users' (ID 100) if 'Domain Users' isn't given a gidNumber.

Hmm, I wonder if this because Windows does not know who the Unix group
'users' is ?

As I said above, 'users' is a Unix group.

No, the default is to create a usergroup with the same name as the user.

The group 'users' has no meaning to Windows, it is a Unix group that
appears only on a Samba AD DC, it is better to use 'Domain Users'
instead, especially in Sysvol.

Again I ask why ? there is no need to create such a group in Samba AD,
just give 'Domain Users' a gidNumber and use this instead.

No, you should change 'users' and 'domusers' to 'Domain Users' ;-)

Only if you have no Unix clients.
