Hai Barry, 

We know about exchange might be a problem, the others i dont know..
Check the windows schema levels. 

You could try a clean setup as shown by my howto. 

Before you install setup ip and hostname in the windows DNS for the linux server. 
Make sure you use a name thats never used before, just to be sure of no side effects. 

Then follow this to the letter. ( so use bind9_dlz ) 

Line 31, use the windows DC's ip's 
Line 47, use the same time server as the windows DC's. 

Until line 259, the provisioning line, change that to join. 
And proceed with the steps.

Thats a mis-config in you setup.

Kopano community version is free, so cant be cheaper.

Debian buster wil get kopano. ( at least lets hope so )

A linux member of windows member ? 
If i think i can make some extra time tomorrow and i'll make a member howto also for Ubuntu and i'll update the current stretch version to 4.8/4.9
