algorithmic rid base

This determines how Samba will use its
algorithmic mapping from uids/gid to the RIDs needed to construct
NT Security Identifiers.

Setting this option to a larger value could be useful to sites
transitioning from WinNT and Win2k, as existing user and
group rids would otherwise clash with system users etc.

All UIDs and GIDs must be able to be resolved into SIDs for
the correct operation of ACLs on the server. As such the algorithmic
mapping can't be 'turned off', but pushing it 'out of the way' should
resolve the issues. Users and groups can then be assigned 'low' RIDs
in arbitrary-rid supporting backends.

Example: 100000

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
