Unable to change domain password from Windows 11 with samba4 domain controller

bh flag

I've set up a samba dc on Ubuntu and connected successfully a blanc win 11 vm. Everything works fin so far, but when I try to change the password in that win11 vm using ctrl+alt+del, it does not work, instead, I get an error message like "the configuration information from domain controller could not be loaded..."

The DC password settings are like this

Password complexity: off
Store plaintext passwords: off
Password history length: 0
Minimum password length: 6
Minimum password age (days): 0
Maximum password age (days): 0
Account lockout duration (mins): 30
Account lockout threshold (attempts): 0
Reset account lockout after (mins): 30

I also checked if I am able to login to that very win11 vm using a different user and this works, too, so I guess there is no connection issue here.

Sorry for the question, maybe it's obvious but I haven't found the solution.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
