The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 10246
Segfault in Samba from time to time
Last modified: 2014-02-26 10:24:36 UTC
Dear samba team,
we still run a Red Hat EL 6.x samba-3.6.9-151 PDC with domain login, roaming profiles, Windws 7 clients and LDAP back end.
In the last couple of weeks we notice some unregular crashes with abrt reports. But as an university our RH subscription dose not include the full support.
The crash happens when users try to login to the windows clients. (Users who logged in before the crash still can access all shares and don't notice any problem.)
I cant see any changes to the installation or configuration which might have an influence to the chrashes.
So any suggestion or help on debugging that problem is very appreciated.
I can provide the abrt and I enabled "debug" and "panic action". So there might be some information which could help to debug that problem.
WHat information may i provide? What can I check?
Thanks and Regards . Götz Reinicke
Installing debuginfo rpms and giving us the stacktrace output from /var/log/messages or log.smbd would be a first step.

O.K. I installed the debuginfo rpm but I guess now we have to wait till the next crash?
Will the current collected information already help?
I can add one output so you see what I got.

one 'panic action' output
Is there also preceding log.smbd output available?

I'm afraid not. We have log level 2, one combined log file and max log side 20MB that was flooded.
I increased the side to 40MB. But on the other hand; would you suggest to split the log file by client/system and set the size to e.g. 5 MB?
We have about 100 clients and disc space is no problem at the moment.
What log level might be good in that case?

Backtrack with machine account information
in this backtrack there are some mashine account information recorded. Like:
#18 0x00007ffbbaa4962b in samr_find_machine_account (mem_ctx=0x7ffbbcfc6e20, b=0x7ffbbcfc7760, account_name=0x7ffbbcfc6980 "PC10768$", domain_sid_p=0x7fffbd936408, user_rid_p=0x7fffbd93641c, user_handle=0x7fffbd936480, access_mask=33554432) at rpc_server/netlogon/srv_netlog_nt.c:600
may be that BT gives some hints.
