[Samba] Microsoft's ADMX templates install message -- anything to worry about?

The thing is, as soon as you install any ADMX-file on your DC the RSAT
only uses the ADMX-files from the DC. Your local ADMX-files on your
workstation will no longer be used by RSAT. So copy all ADMX-files
either direct from Microsoft or from your local Windows-System (where
you installed the RSAT) to the DC in the right directory.
