[Samba] Questions on DRS replicate command

We fixed a similar problem with the join command in v4.10 - see

I think we've done some testing recently around 'samba-tool drs
replicate' on large DBs without problems. So it might help if you tell us:
- what version of samba you're using.
- the actual error you're getting (e.g. a python exception?).
- the exact options you're passing to the command, e.g. are you using
- roughly how many records are in your DB.

1. It depends a bit on what command options you specified.

2. The command should wait until replication completes, unless you use
the --async-op option.

3. Not sure. Maybe try 'samba-tool drs showrepl'?
