Setting up a new AD DC on Ubuntu 18.04, samba 4.7 from ubuntu's repos 
and BIND_DLZ. Did a samba-tool domain classicupgrade from an old NT3.x 
domain, imported users and groups ok.

I am able to join windows workstations, can login with a domain user, etc.

Problem is my user A1\mmerlone, member of 'domain admins' group, cannot 
open ADUC with the error RPC server is unavailable. If I login with 
A1\Administrator it works fine.
