[Samba] ldbsearch different available options

I have two separate Debian Bullseye systems running both 
2:2.2.3-2~deb11u2 of ldb-tools and 2:4.13.13+dfsg-1~deb11u5 of 
samba-common. I even hashed the ldbsearch binaries and got the same result.
When running ldbsearch on the first host, I get shown plenty of 
available options, especially the authentication options are available. 
On the second host though, all authentication options are missing. 
/etc/samba/smb.conf is the same on both hosts.

samba-tool is also behaving suspiciously on the second host: Running 
"samba-tool user list -H ldap://<hostname> --kerberos=yes" works on the 
first, but fails on the second with "00002020: Operation unavailable 
without authentication".

Both hosts are regular joined domain members.

What might be going on here?
