It is fairly common to get errors using ADUC similar to yours, normally 
it is possible to click through them and then everything works, if this 
is your case, just ignore them.

Can I also introduce you to the wonderful world of 'samba-tool', this 
can do a lot of what ADUC does, but on the Unix command line, just open 
a terminal on the Samba AD DC and type 'samba-tool --help' for more info.
