Samba 4.14.4
Migrated a domain. with a  Rename.
The domain is up and resolving correctly and logs in etc. (seems to function totally correctly)

As stated in documents the GPO point to the old domain.


However this hangs the windows 10  gpmc.msc tool.


as soon as you select the “” to maintain the tree of users/gpo ,etc you get into an endless loop since  “” cannot be found (also you might not want it referencing the old domain)

“The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.”
This then puts the MS tools into a tight loop with no cancel options.

Where is this reference to  “Domain:”. kept in the LDAP.
Totally deleting the GPO from SYSVOL AND  going into CN=Policies.CN=System. To delete any used GPO links ,  and restarting the  samba does not remove the references.
