1. Every time we need GPO related information from 'net' tool it asks for password. Why, can't we cache?

# net ads gpo listall
Enter root's password:
Got 5 replies

2. While samba-tool does not ask.
# samba-tool gpo listall
GPO          : {0C7EBE47-2264-4A4C-868C-B31CDDC999B5}
display name : test-Computers-GPO-1

GPO          : {31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
display name : Default Domain Policy

GPO          : {398F2193-BCB5-438D-AB47-EC65512E221C}
display name : smart-card-gpo

GPO          : {6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}
display name : Default Domain Controllers Policy

GPO          : {8D86E985-594F-4D32-95E6-272647F9CDF4}
display name : test-Users-GPO-1

Machine is acting as domain member.

Ask is can we make 'net ads gpo <>' cache password same as samba-tool, or net command itself?
Since net takes admin password at time of joining domain.
