Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 687862
sample config file differs from documentation

The LDAP attribute that corresponds to the user´s id.
The LDAP attribute that corresponds to the user´s primary group id.
This differs from the values in the example config file:
# ldap_user_uid_number = msSFU30UidNumber
# ldap_user_gid_number = msSFU30GidNumber
The example file is AD centric since the AD is currently a predominant option. I frankly do not see a bug here. The defaults are correct for a generic POSIX case but for AD you need to use the specific attributes that are given in the example.
Would you mind providing more details about why you think this is wrong otherwise we will close the bug.
This is not a bug. That line in the example config file is attempting to demonstrate how to set the UID and gid values when using an older Active Directory as opposed to a POSIX-compliant LDAP server.
