Andrew, is this correct, does Debian not backport security updates ?

I understand your problem, you want to keep things stable, but this
means you end up with a Samba version that is EOL as far as Samba is
concerned. Just because a new version of Samba comes out, it doesn't
mean you have to upgrade.

I personally use Louis's repo, but I don't update at every new
release, but if you did update to a Samba version >= 4.6.0 you could
use the new 'ad' backend lines. This would allow you to have the
correct primaryGroupID and a Unix primary group that isn't Domain
Users, this would make everybody happy.

idmap config FICHLAN : unix_nss_info = yes
idmap config FICHLAN : unix_primary_group = yes
