It all depends on what you mean by 'automatic creation' ;-)

If you create a user or group on ADUC, the user is created as a Windows
user or group, without any rfc2307 attributes, it gets a unique 'RID'.
If you want a Windows user or group to be known to Unix, you need to
add the relevant rfc2307 attributes and make the Unix aware of them
(that's where Samba comes in). On ADUC, you use the Unix Attributes
tabs for this, you will also have to install IDMU. If everything is
installed correctly, you should be able to add rfc2307 attributes to a
user by selecting the user, right clicking on the user and selecting
'Properties', you should then be able to select the 'Unix Attibutes'
tab and add the required attributes, but they will not be added unless
you set the Primary group.

Not very automatic, is it ?
