Bug Description

If you install package samba4-common-bin by itself (to work around bug #832465) and then run
samba-tool testparm
You get
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/samba-tool", line 25, in <module>
    from samba import netcmd
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/samba/netcmd/", line 196, in <module>
    from samba.netcmd.time import cmd_time
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/samba/netcmd/", line 23, in <module>
    import common
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/samba/netcmd/", line 22, in <module>
    from import Net
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

dpkg-query --search
in an installation with the samba4 package shows
samba4: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/samba/

but I think the file should be in samba4-common-bin rather than samba4, so that you can run testparm to check the format of smb.conf prior to installing samba4

Actually, I'm not sure why any of this depends on libkdc-policy at all. It shouldn't be necessary for testparm or python-net.

  * Switch to debhelper 9.
  * samba4-clients: Drop conflicts with smbclient; upstream has renamed
