hello. i cant get to work showing windows group policies in rsat.
after samba-tool gpo admxload -U Administrator command i have bunch of errors.

according to wiki https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Group_Policy im used command
1. samba-tool gpo admxload -U Administrator

2 then i downloaded ADMX templates for windows from there https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/102157 and used msiextract

3. then extracted folder i uploaded to samba AD DC server and run command samba-tool gpo samba-tool gpo admxload -U Administrator --admx-dir=/usr/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Group\ Policy/Windows\ 10\ October\ 2020\ Update\ \(20H2\)/PolicyDefinitions/

i can see that files and folder uploaded to PolicyDefinitions folder

and then when i go to RSAT GPMC
1. right click + edit any GPO
2. computer configuration/policies  
i get bunch of errors like

couldn't find a suitable resource file for the file \\mydomain\sysvol\mydomain\policies\PolictyDefinition\staging_ActiveXinstallService.admx(error =2) can't find the specified file

and this error for any ADMX file, looks like they cant see ADML files but looks like ADML files in place... what's am i doing wrong?
