I am not entirely sure what the difference is between 'samba-tool domain 
backup online' and 'samba-tool domain backup offline', apart from the 
first works and the second doesn't (until the fix going through gitlab 
now is added) 😁

the online version does work, you just have to use kerberos and add '-N'
