Yippee, that worked!  I was able to unmask (systemctl unmask 
samba-ad-dc) and samba started.  wbinfo --ping-dc returns the new DC!  
Also get correct groups and users with wbinfo -g, wbinfo -u!

Now I hope I can finally get rid of that Server 2003 machine.

Is anyone working on getting that patch into the Debian python package?
