[Samba] Listing AD group members

I did come up with that option from Google, but wondered if it was only suitable if Samba was the AD controller, since that was always the context it was used in.

This is the result I get.

root at hostname:~# samba-tool group listmembers groupname
ERROR(ldb): Failed to list members of "groupname" group  - ldb_search: invalid basedn '(null)'
root at hostname:~# 

Samba 4.6.7, 

smb.conf looks like this:-

   workgroup = DOMAIN
   security = ADS
   realm = DOMAIN.LOCAL

   idmap config *:backend = tdb
   idmap config *:range = 95000-99999
   idmap config DOMAIN:backend = rid
   idmap config DOMAIN:range = 100000-999999

   winbind trusted domains only = no
   winbind use default domain = yes
   winbind refresh tickets = yes

   template shell = /bin/bash
   template homedir = /home/%D/%U

Should I be passing it a basedn either in the command, or in the config somewhere?
