I created a service account that's a member of enterprise admins, domain 
admins and domain controllers.  I also explicitly gave the account 
replication permissions at the domain level.

This is the error I'm getting.

Get-ADReplAccount : The naming context could not be found

Once person said they got it working on an older version of Samba: 

I am using 4.6.4 (soon to be 4.6.6).
