So you want to turn this:

Feb 28 16:19:36 testkar sshd[3003]: pam_krb5(sshd:auth): authentication failure; logname=adminuser uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=192.168.0.88
Feb 28 16:19:36 testkar sshd[3003]: Accepted password for adminuser from 192.168.0.88 port 39297 ssh2
Feb 28 16:19:36 testkar sshd[3003]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user adminuser by (uid=0)

into this:

Feb 28 16:32:56 testkar sshd[3459]: Accepted password for adminuser from 192.168.0.88 port 39399 ssh2
Feb 28 16:32:56 testkar sshd[3459]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user adminuser by (uid=0)

for non domain users ?

Open /etc/pam.c/common-auth and find this line:

auth    [success=2 default=ignore]      pam_krb5.so minimum_uid=1000

Change the number '1000' to the lower range number you set in smb.conf.

Example:
You have 'idmap config SAMDOM : range = 10000-99999999' in smb.conf
Change the line to this:

auth    [success=2 default=ignore]      pam_krb5.so minimum_uid=10000
