Sorry that the message is confusing. The message was added to remind
users to do exactly what you are doing. If you run that command without
--admx-dir, it installs the default samba admx files, which causes RSAT
to only use the admx files on the SYSVOL, ignoring local templates. At
this point, the Windows Administrative templates disappear from RSAT.
I suppose I could try to disable that message when you're installing the
