[Samba] Manage Central Store to include Windows 10 and 7 admx files

     Anyone running a mix network of Win. 10 and 7 clients and use the 
Central store for group policy administration? I'm adding Windows 10 
workstations and need to update my Central Store to include the Win. 10 
admx files.

I read over the steps for a Microsoft AD Network


but am unsure if it's entirely relevant to how Samba handles these 
files. MY assumption is to save the Windows 10 files to my existing 
Central Store

(Yes I know about .local)

overwriting all the existing files and run

'samba-tool ntacl sysvolreset'

I believe it should be as simple as that.

I had also planned to use a Win 7 client to administer Win 7 machines 
and a Win 10 client to administer Win 10 machines. Using RSAT on both.  
Aside from backing up my sysvol folder, am I missing anything before I 
proceed? Thanks.
