Running "sudo samba-tool dbfix" produces the following Python error:

sudo samba-tool dbcheck
ERROR(<type 'exceptions.IndexError'>): uncaught exception - list index out
of range
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", line

    return self.run(*args, **kwargs)

Appreciate you joining the conversation Andrew, do you think CrashPlan
corrupted this database?  I can't think of anything else I could have done
that would've caused such a drastic failure and would like to know so I
don't repeat the blunder in the future, this has been a royal PITA.
