I have a samba3 server (ubuntu, 3.4.7) joined to a samba4 that has been working very nicely but today I got errors:
net ads testjoin
says the join is OK, but
checking the trust secret via RPC calls failed
Could not check secret
and winbind logs on that machine (samba3) says:
lsa_lookupsids call failed with NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY - retrying...
However, another samba3 machine that not really used works just fine...
I finally found two stuck winbind processes on the failing samba3 machine, after killing them and restarting winbind
everthing was working perfectly again, but I would like to understand the problem better.
What would cause winbindd to completely stop responding after running just fine for days?
