It sort of goes with being an Active Directory Domain Controller ;-)
Whilst it isn't 100% compatible with a Windows DC, it gets nearer and

If you have a problem, see if it is something that happens to Windows

If you want to do or check something, again see how Windows does it
from the command line, you might even find a script that you may be
able to port to python etc.
