Install the samba release of your choice (master git snapshot or 4.0rc3 
unpack those three files to the folders created by install
rename all the *.ldb.bak files in private and all subfolders to *.ldb
If you had any group policies run samba-tool ntacl sysvolreset to 
synchronize the acls of the sysvol share to those of the directory.
