We have recently moved to samba version 4.3.5.
While working on this build, we have observed that Notifyd was getting disappeared every now and then. Later we have found that it was exiting on receiving SIGHUP signal which we normally use to broadcast(using killall -SIGHUP smbd) all smbd processes for reload config.
Since notifyd is forked from smbd and not having any handlers for signals like SIGHUP, SIGUSR1,etc it simply existed.
We need to mask those signals which we are not handling.
