Initially you could download and install the install RSAT on a Windows 
server, this has now changed, it has become a web service that runs on a 
DC and you connect to that with RSAT (a different RSAT), Samba has never 
run this web service, so it couldn't have worked with 4.11.2. I think we 
need more info, but the language barrier isn't helping 🙁
