The problem is that 10 days could be a kerberos problem, except you are 
not using kerberos. Also, as far as I am aware, you only need python to 
build Samba and for samba-tool and you cannot use the latter with a 
standalone server.

After a bit of investigation, it looks like 'libsamba-debug-samba4.so' 
is in the smbclient package on archlinux.
