Description Ian 2006-06-14 04:40:05 UTC
I have two servers (a file store and an email server) where winbind intermittantly stops running. I have kept a log of these times, and examined them for a pattern. I beleive I have traced the fault on the email server to the time the kerberos ticket is renewed. I have adjusted the time
as follows
   ticket_lifetime = 36000
   renew_lifetime = 40000
This has slightly improved the reliability as it now renews two out of three times successfully. But on the third time winbind dies, if left samba eventually crashes. I have put a script in place which checks the winbind service and restarts it if it is not running.

I would appreciate any help or guidance in this matter.

Could you possibly
* test whether this is still the case with 3.0.23rc2
* provide us logfiles, gdb backtraces ?

I will download and install 3.0.23rc2 hopefully today. 
I am fairly new to linux, please could you tell me which logfiles you require, where do I send them too. 
How do I get a gdb backtrace?

I will not be upgrading to samba 3.0.23rc2 as this release says it is not for production servers.
Comment 4 Jeremy Allison 2006-06-19 10:42:57 UTC
We're not asking you to update to 3.0.23RC code on production servers, but to test it on non-production ones. That way you're helping us get it ready for production use.

The tgt != tgs ticket lifetime has been adressed in bug #4009 and will be available in 3.0.25 (or your vendor picks up the patch earlier).
