[Samba] ldbsearch returning NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER

I have a Samba DC connected to two Windows 2008 R2 DC's. On the Samba machine, if I run `ldbsearch -H ldaps://*SAMBA-DC-IP* -U administrator`

It asks for my password and then works great. I can use any domain user and this works. However, if I instead run:

`ldbsearch -H ldaps:// -k1 --krb5-ccache=/tmp/krb5cc_0`

I get this:

Failed to bind - LDAP client internal error: NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER
Failed to connect to '...' with backend 'ldaps': (null)
Failed to connect to ... - (null)

This happens regardless of whether or not the ticket exists at /tmp/krb5cc_0 (I can run kinit to create it and kdestroy to remove it). It's not the most useful error message...and strace isn't turning up anything interesting.

Any ideas?
