I am not sure this has solved my problem but it has.
My Folder in Linux had a space in it's name. Renaming the folder to 
remove the space and updating smb.conf returned the "Security" tab in 
RSAT Computer Management.
When I changed the name back to having a space the Security tab 
disappeared again.
