Since I have set up a Samba PDC-Server (openSUSE 11.2-64bit with default
package Samba 3.4.3) approx. 8 months ago, I have encountered 3 or 4
times a severe crash of Samba.
What happens is that all over a sudden Samba floods /var/log/messages
and /var/log/warn with the following message (cropped out
smbd: No data on inotify fd?!
This message is being repeated until those 2 logfiles have filled up the
Samba is not responsive anymore and due to a filled up /var the whole
server is malfunctioning.
The only remedy that I had until today is to reboot the server and
delete ../messages & ../warn.
Everything works fine then, until a few months later it occurs again
without any obvious reason.
I updated to Samba 3.5.6 (From the official openSUSE-Samba-Repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/samba:/misc/openSUSE_11.2/noarch/)
after the second time it occured, but it happened another 2 times after
the update, too.
Is there anybody out there who could help me with this one?
I am thankful for any hint or peace of advice!!
