I would like to dump my GPO policies with the following command 
"samba-tool gpo backup {LONG-ID-NUMBER}" but it didn't work.

System details:

- Tranquil IT's repo.

- Samba version 4.10.12

- CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core) with kernel 

Command result:

ERROR(<class 'UnicodeDecodeError'>): Error copying GPO from DC - 'utf-8' 
codec can't decode byte 0xda in position 34: invalid continuation byte
   File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/samba/netcmd/gpo.py", line 
1050, in run
     backup_directory_remote_to_local(conn, sharepath, gpodir)
   File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/samba/netcmd/gpo.py", line 
294, in backup_directory_remote_to_local
   File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/samba/gp_parse/gp_ini.py", 
line 40, in parse

Yours Sincerely
