Hi Guys,

I have been running squid with AD authentication and security group authentication for the last 6 months, and suddenly squid failed with the following error  message

(squid): Too many queued ntlmauthenticator requests. (I tried to start squid in a off peak time there were only 35 users, still it says Too many queued ntlmauthenticator requests.

What can cause this issue ?

Iam using

Squid Cache: Version 3.0.STABLE24
configure options:  '--prefix=3D/usr/local/squid' '--enable-auth=3Dntlm,bas= ic' '--enable-external-acl-helpers=3Dwbinfo_group'

and also iam getting the following error

[2010/10/18 10:28:58,  3] winbindd/winbindd_cm.c:1597(connection_ok)
  connection_ok: Connection to  for domain xxx  is not connected

(but if I use the net join command it says joined to domain)

According to my squid report normally there are 700 people connecting to the proxy, but now its says  winbind maximum connection exceeds 200,

Squid working fine without AD authentication through smb/winbind

This is my smb.conf

workgroup =zzz
realm = zz.COM
password server = *
#netbios name = zzzz
server string = Samba file and print server
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
log level = 2
log file = /var/log/samba/%m
max log size = 50
winbind separator = \.
#printcap name = cups
#printing = cups
idmap cache time = 1800
idmap negative cache time = 300
winbind cache time = 1800
##end new
idmap uid = 15000-20000
idmap gid = 15000-20000
#winbind use default domain = yes
nt acl support = yes
map acl inherit = yes
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
#client ntlmv2 auth = yes
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
ldap passwd sync  = yes

Appreciate your help on this.
