Description Thorsten Reichelt 2004-08-19 05:52:13 UTC
Hi !

I have installed the current Samba3.0.5-Debian under Debian/testing as as PDC.

Every time I try to change the access rights for a file under WindowsXP-Pro(SP2)
and select the group "Domain Users" Windows freezes for minutes and on Linux
"smbd" and "nscd" together take over 60% of CPU load. This happens only if I
select a Domain group. Single users can be added to the accesslist without any

Now the Samba server is no longer reachable from Windows.

The smbd process cannot be removed by stopping samba.
I have to do a "kill -9 <PID>" for it.

This should be fixed in 3.0.6rc2.  There was a loop bug 
when searching group membership and encountering a 
non-existent user account.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
