Samba 4 insufficientAccessRights when modifying Configuration

I tried using a standard tcpdump -w and then loading the result into 
wireshark, but the output for when I use ADSI (MMC) is completely 
different and I don't see anything recognizable there.  In fact, 
wireshark doesn't even detect the LDAP protcol at all - it's showing 
just TCP in the protocol field for all packets.

Might it be encrypted?  If so, how would we go about finding a useful 
trace to compare?
