By recently, do you mean something like 5 minor versions before yours ?

The samba-tool 'OU' commands were added at 4.9.0 , so you should have 
them. What does 'samba-tool user create --help' return ? Does it show 
'--userou=USEROU' ?

If it does try your command like this:

samba-tool user create bengt changePwd0 --surname=Swedin 
--given-name=Bengt --userou='OU=Konton' -script-path=netlogon.cmd 
--profile-path='\\DC2-HPLTS\profiles\bengt' --home-drive=U 

Just a thought, does the 'Konton' OU exist ?
