In another thread on this list (https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2019-August/225607.html), Rowland suggested that the following
command doesn't work ie it still requests the password:

 samba-tool domain backup online --targetdir=<output-dir> --server=<DC-server> -k yes

However, I tried it out on one of my DCs and found it created the backup but failed at the end as this excerpt of the console output

  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/domain_backup.py", line 81, in get_sid_for_restore
    rid = int(res[0].get('rIDNextRID')[0])

Is this another bug?
