Hi All, 

I discovered something to be wrong with the file winbind_idmap.tdb. 

Receive lots of messages saying: 

Feb 13 15:15:59 rh9printsvr winbindd[4201]: 
tdb(/var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb): rec_read bad magic 0x42424242 at 
Feb 13 15:15:59 rh9printsvr winbindd[4201]: [2004/02/13 15:15:59, 0] 

I stopped smb then proceeded to delete this file (made a backup before 
doing so) and started smb again. 
The file was recreated and I havent seen this particular message again. 
I need to know what happend and what has the deletion of this file caused 
to happen with the ID mappings ? 

I am still however getting the following: 
Feb 13 15:30:15 rh9printsvr smbd[4620]: [2004/02/13 15:30:15, 0] 
Feb 13 15:30:15 rh9printsvr smbd[4620]:   register_message_flags: 
tdb_fetch failed 

Anybody knows what this means. 

I'm running samba-3.0.2rc1-1
