How did you try this? From the GPMC? You might try manually deleting the
directory from sysvol and then try deleting the GPO through the GPMC.

As far as I can tell, this tool only reads the security settings from a
DC and resets these in the Domain Controller Policy. In the case of
samba4, that won't really do anything useful unless that is the GPO you
have a problem with.

Replication does not currently replicate the sysvol directory, so in
this case, this won't help you.
