[CentOS] Centos+AD integration (uid/gid problems)

I need to have several EL machines in an AD env. 
Joining the machines was easier than expected using authconfig, but what 
happens now is that blahdomain\blahuser gets assigned a 
different, random ID each time I use a different station.
In AD I did specify the UID and GID in the UNIX Attributes tab for blahuser, 
but it gets totally ignored; so do the other values (for home, shell etc).

Ideally I'd have all the users assigned a static uid and gid from AD and 
have /home on all machines mounted from NFS; but right now if I log in with 
blahuser to another machine my $HOME is owned by another random id.

Sugesstions? What am I missing? I'm quite a noob with Windows :)
