Thanks for the info.

So how can I restart all the services wothout actually rebooting the machine

I've already restarted apache squid samba ftp ftproxy etc
But I don't know can I restart all other services (for example VTI and all
basic services)
Actually ALL services (from VTI to apache) on this server use PAM to
athenticate users through samba (i.e. are using NSS subsystem someway)
