I have to look into a Samba4 installation from a former colleague that 
has been running for the last two years reliably.

It's "old" unfortunately, version 4.11.6 and we are delaying the upgrade 
(scared of breaking it).

The administrator reported GPO related issues (GPO with new drive 
mappings via group membership seem not to be applied) and I tried the 

root at dmh002sv:/# samba-tool dbcheck
Checking 1173 objects
Checked 1173 objects (0 errors)

ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (3221225524, 'The object name is

security.SECINFO_GROUP | security.SECINFO_DACL, 

Can someone point me where to start looking at? Because it has been 
running reliable and I am pretty sure that there have been GPO changes 
over the last two years, I suspect that maybe a recent GPO change is 
causing this but don't know how to find and isolate a most recent GPO
