[Samba] backup

I just installed samba4 on ubuntu 14.04 from de repositories:

# samba --version
Version 4.1.6-Ubuntu

I wanted to make a backup but *samba_backup* was missing, so I download
4.1.7 using Git and configured it.

The problem is it isn't working, tar is stopping because it refuses to
create and empty file. I tracked it to the second *tar* in the script, and
*echoed* it:

# samba_backup
realitvedirname:  ./private
if:  tar cjf /root/backup/samba4_private.2014-05-15.tar.bz2 ./private
--exclude=*.ldb --warning=no-file-ignored --transform s/.ldb.bak$/.ldb/
else:  tar cjf /root/backup/etc.2014-05-15.tar.bz2 --warning=no-file-ignored
tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive
Try 'tar --help' or 'tar --usage' for more information.
Error while archiving /root/backup/etc.2014-05-15.tar.bz2 - status = 2

In the second loop $realivedirname is empty; how should I solve this? the 3
folders it tries to backup are './*private*', '' and './*sysvol*'
