[Samba] Synchronization problems between Win2k8R2 and samba

I have a small test network with a Win2k8R2 DC.

I've added a samba4 as second DC in this network.
The join seems to run smoothly.

But, after the join, this command: ldapsearch -LLL -x -H 
ldapi://%2Fvar%2Flib%2Fsamba%2Fprivate%2Fldap_priv%2Fldapi  -b
"dc=test,dc=dom"  "(SAMAccountName=Administrateur)"
returns some strange results:
– some attributes like unicodePwd and supplementalCredentials are missing
– lots of attributes are base64 encoded, example:
    –description:: Q29tcHRlIGTigJl1dGlsaXNhdGV1ciBk4oCZYWRtaW5pc3RyYXRpb24=
(for information python
gives 'Compte d\xe2\x80\x99utilisateur d\xe2\x80\x99administration')

On the 4 tests I did, I always get the same result.
Is that normal or is something going wrong ?
