That sounds like a combination that should work OK.  However, if
you're able to build CTDB 2.5.4 then it has a bunch of fixes in it.

If you can get that GDB backtrace then we might be able to help figure
out why smbd was crashing.

Same thing?  smbd crash?

That's very strange.  You're storing the configuration in /etc?  I
think some early documentation suggested storing configuration in the
cluster filesystem but that isn't generally recommended.  If you're
storing configuration in /etc then I can't imagine why it would

peace & happiness,
