[Samba] Samba server dropping off the domain

I have been unable to find out why our server drops after 15 to 40
minutes. Gone over everything on the domain servers and not seeing any
errors there. And no error message on the samba side either. So I took
out my sledge hammer and pounded the square peg into the circle hole
with a crontab to rejoin to the domain every 10 minutes. I found I do
not need to stop and restart samba for this.
That's working, and I can move on to other things.
