Dear Samba List!

Long story short and please just don't ask; if it were up to me this 
would have not happened:

I need to recreate the default GPO-s (as in the 
\SysVol\domain.of\Policies\ folder and subfolders) of my domain.
Trying to delete the old GPO-s I run into errors, both in the windows 
mmc and on the dc with runing samba-tools as root.
ERROR(ldb): uncaught exception - LDAP error 50 
LDAP_INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_RIGHTS -  <dsdb_access: Access check failed on 
 > <>
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", 
line 175, in _run

Reprovisioning is not an option; since this is an active, "in use" 
system with lots of accounts.
The moment this is solved I swear to make a second DC with sysvol 

Thank you!
