Ah, that explains it. Sorry, but your plan isn't going to work, your
ldap dump will not contain all the contents of your AD.

The latest Samba now has the tools to possibly do what you want, check
out 'samba-tool domain backup --help' for more info.
You will need Samba >= 4.9.0

However the best plan is to have more than one DC, this way if one DC
does go down, your AD will still be available from the other(s), though
you may have to transfer/seize the FSMO roles.
