Suddenly the MMC snap-in "Active Directory Users and
Groups" stopped working.  Attempting to access it fails with

The directory schema is not accessible because:
An invalid directory pathname was passed.
For this reason, the New menu may be inaccurate, and extension
snap-ins may not work properly.

- followed by -

Data from Active Directory Users and Computers is not available from
Domain Controller (null) because:
Unspecified error
Try again late, or choose another DC by selecting Connect to Domain
Controller on the Domain context menu.

I am using samba 4.4.5. There are no logs found regarding to this.
