Description Kevin L. Collins 2003-09-02 09:39:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Compiled Samba 2.2.7-3.21 from sourse RPM to include LDAP backend 
functionality - hence the ".nei" identifier.

Machine will run for weeks handing our files for our main office.  Then 
without warning refuses to allow additional connects.

When this happens, I can not log on - even as root - at the local terminal.  
Only solution is a reboot of the machine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Samba-2.2.7-3.21as.nei

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Let the machine run for a week or so.
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  Machine becomes unresposive - requires reboot to resolve.

Expected Results:  The machine should not have stopped responding.

Additional info:

clipped from /var/log/messages:

Too many open files

Machine is runnining:
OpenLDAP - 2.0.27-2.7.3 as "Master Directory Server"
DHCPD - 2.0p15-8

Did "Server" install, so anything that comes along with that process in on the 
machine as well.
Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2003-09-02 10:08:31 EDT
We don't support the LDAP code in Samba-2.2.7, which is why Samba isn't 
compiled with it.  You can try asking for help on the Samba mailing lists, or 
try the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Beta, which contains Samba 3.0.0rc1 with 
built-in LDAP support.  If you can reproduce this problem using the Red Hat 
supplied binary RPMs, reopen this bug.
