Interestingly the samba.tests.samba_tool.gpo tests fail against ad_dc_ntvfs 
but succeed against ad_dc!

Something is fishy with that env.

REASON: Exception: Exception: Traceback (most recent call last):                                                                                                                    
  File "/builddir/build/BUILD/samba-4.18.0/bin/python/samba/tests/samba_tool/", line 583, in test_admx_load                                                                   
AssertionError: False is not true : PolicyDefinitions was not created

The command interestingly succeeds, but then it fails to find the policy 
definitions. Maybe we have an issue with exported variables in that env.
