Description Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2004-06-25 08:13:39 UTC
Readding after server hickup:

A Samba server configured as domain controller launch a smbd process for each 
IPC$ connection during client authentication. The launched smbd process boost 
the CPU load of the system. 
Steps to reproduce: 
	1) Edit a group in /etc/group. Add a user, it mustn't exist 
in /etc/passwd. I had that line: 
	2) I had the group in the NETLOGON share definition: 
		        path = /usr/local/share/samba/lib/netlogon 
		        write list = +staff 
		        create mask = 0664 
		        directory mask = 0775 
		        force directory mode = 02000 
		        browseable = No 
		I think it need to see the expected results. 
	3) Authenticate in a Windows client in the domain. 
Actual results: 
The smbd process for the IPC$ connection from the Windows client begin an 
infinite loop. In the loop the process call getpwnam function to get the name 
of the invalid user. The getpwname function always return an error condition 
because the user doesn't exist, and the process never leaves the loop.

Reproduced here.

Should be fixed with

Could you please try again with samba3.0.5rc1 ?

Sorry, it will take me some days. 
I only have a production server with a backport of samba 3.0.4 for debian 
woody. I don't have another test machine.
