We seem to have similar problems, although no report of corruptions yet,
only slow connections and saves when the system load increases (> 300
smbds). I have seen several log entries complaining of broken pipes:
[2002/08/20 11:17:00, 0] lib/util_sock.c:get_socket_addr(1012)
getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected
[2002/08/20 11:17:00, 0] lib/util_sock.c:write_socket_data(499)
write_socket_data: write failure. Error = Broken pipe
[2002/08/20 11:17:00, 0] lib/util_sock.c:write_socket(524)
write_socket: Error writing 4 bytes to socket 5: ERRNO = Broken pipe
[2002/08/20 11:17:00, 0] lib/util_sock.c:send_smb(704)
Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Broken pipe)
We also use nss_ldap (105) from PADL, but according to a post from Luke
Howard, it was fixed in 181:
We keep /etc/passwd *mostly* populated but locked to save the DS from
searching through 58000 user accounts when a program calls getpw*** so
perhaps corruption occurs infrequently enough that people don't report it.
So what version of nss_ldap do you use and do we have the same problem?
