Still no success.

I upgraded to samba-4.12.10 now (thanks, Louis), just in case.

I know it should not be an issue, but I wonder if the "//" in the 
password somehow is a problem when called from within the bash script.

We will test another password soon, just to see what happens.

And maybe "#!/bin/sh" ... I still don't see why it works from the bash 
and not in the script (we need it as cron job in the end).
