Whilst there have been some ldap changes, these have been improvments
and shouldn't affect connecting with ldap.

You say you 'built' Samba 4.8.0 and then installed it on your DC, I
take it you mean that you upgraded your original 4.5.16 DC to 4.8.0.
If this is the case, you will need to run 'sambaundoguididx' and then
revert to an earlier version of Samba. To put it bluntly, upgrading to
4.8.0 doesn't seem to work and as such, shouldn't be done, wait for the
fix that is coming in 4.8.1
