I decided to give Samba 4.9.x a new try as AD DC in one of my servers.
It has been running version 4.8.9. I installed version 4.9.4 and when I
ran samba-tool dbcheck I still obtained the following error message:
ERROR(<type 'exceptions.UnicodeDecodeError'>): uncaught exception -
'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 25: ordinal not in
line 177, in _run
return self.run(*args, **kwargs)
line 157, in run
line 222, in check_database
error_count += self.check_object(object.dn, attrs=attrs)
line 2315, in check_object
expected_dn = ldb.Dn(self.samdb, "RDN=RDN,%s" % (parent_dn))
Looks like the Unicode problem with Python 2.6.x is not yet solved.
This particular machine is running CentOS 6.10. I cannot upgrade to 7.x
yet because it has discontinued support for a particular RAID controller
in use (IBM Megaraid, ips.ko driver).
