[Samba] getting started with GPOs

Running the sernet distribution of Samba 4.2 on Ubuntu 14 LTS.
I have a DC and a Member Server and I have a Windows 8.1 workstation on
which I can log in and get a drive mapped to a share on the Member Server.
I want to try setting up a GPO. The goal is to redirect the documents
folder on windows workstations to a network share.
So I start the Group Policy Management tool on my windows 8.1 workstation,
which is logged into the domain as Administrator.
I see "A Processing error occurred collecting data using this base domain
controller. Please change the base domain controller and try again." I
click a few more things and then I get "Permissions for this GPO in the
SYSVOL folder are inconsistent with those in Active Directory" I click ok
and it apparently does nothing.
On the Samba side the only thing I see in the logs are some complaints
about not being able to load the printer list.
Is this expected to work? How can I start to troubleshoot this?
