Samba developers,

I have implemented the samba 4 PDC into our production systems here at
my office. It has been working perfectly fine and doing what needs to be
done. Couple of weeks ago I was messing with the group policy management
and started to get an error that the objects were not there; referring
to the group policy objects. Nothing of significance that I can think of
happened in that time span. Now I have the group policy objects that
were linked at the time and I can edit those and change settings on them
however if I try and link to a new OU or try and create another group
policy object it gives me an error saying that it cannot find the group
policy objects or container. I have attached some screen shots of
exactly what I am getting. I need to know if you guys know how to get
this access back as I will need to add more group policies in the
future. I would really appreciate some input on this and even if you
might know what could have caused this to avoid in the future. I have
looked on the internet for awhile and really haven't found anything
pertaining to this because samba 4 is so new and not yet used as much.
Please give me a response either way, I would greatly appreciate it. Let
me know if you need anymore information.
