I am not the only person that says it prompts for a password and I have
run it again and it prompted for a password:
root at dc4:~# kinit Administrator
Password for Administrator at SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM:
root at dc4:~# samba-tool domain backup online --targetdir=/root/
--server=dc4 -k yes
It prints various messages, then this:

Creating backup file
Notice the password prompt ????
If you just press enter, the backup completes without error. I tracked
it down to where it backs up sysvol.
