Change the ID of an user on Synology

I tried to change the user ID of a Synology user, during my nightmare of streamlining user ids for NFS shares. usermod resulted in a command not found, what a surprise. Anyways to change an ID: edit /etc/passwd and swap the ID edit /etc/group in case you want to change a group ID synouser --rebuild all to synchronize the changes to the system.
