There are many unimplemented features in Samba compared with AD, and
certainly plenty of differing behaviours, but few that seem to matter
in real-world production.  It is entirely reasonable to assume you may
have found one, but to validate that we will need: - a proper PCAP file, not a redacted screenshot - a comparison between Samba4 and Windows AD - this test re-confirmed on git master.
If you could do that, and get back to us with a bug, we may be able to
help further.
