I see winbindd crash after some hours after start/restart.

  async_request_timeout_handler: child pid 50076 is not responding. Closing connection to it.

What does it means?

That's not a crash message, that's winbindd closing down a non-responsive child. Normal behavior.

Comment 2 Alexander Gottlieb (mail account dead) 2008-10-15 20:48:48 UTC
Hmmm... But when I see this message, Winbind stops to serve nsswitch requests.

I use winbind for auth pop3/imap/smtp users via pam_winbind and nss_winbind.

What can I do? Restart samba every 30-60 mins? :-)

My config:

   workgroup = DIMAIN
   netbios name = SERVER

   winbind separator = ~
   idmap uid = 10000-50000
   idmap gid = 10000-50000
   idmap cache time = 3600
   winbind enum users = yes
   winbind enum groups = yes
   winbind use default domain = no
   winbind offline logon = true
   winbind refresh tickets = true
   winbind cache time = 86400
   server string = Main Mail Relay
   security = ADS
   load printers = no
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 500
   password server = *
   realm = DOMAIN
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   local master = no
   domain master = no
