I have a problem I can't find information on anywhere. It might be a linux
related problem and not samba but I only see it in Samba.
I had a working linux box running samba for a classroom of kids. 35
shared its drive and got their educational settings. Its running in
security=user mode. The problem with it *WAS* 2.0.3 samba would
build up too many processes and hang the linux box. I had a new
version of redhat (6.1) and loaded that from scratch, loaded Samba
2.0.6 on top of its 2.0.5 as I heard that was good.
Now it runs *great* for a while but at random times for no apparent
reason it logs an error saying PAM_pwdb authentication error, (uid=0).
Samba stops talking to that one computer until it reboots. Other
students do fine.
This error is unmentioned from what I can find. Anybody seen this
before? I am kind of desperate as the kids can't tolerate flakey
computers and the only solution is to use NT if I can get this working
and I hate giving Microsoft money for drive sharing.
