I have been following this and I am going to add my two cents . . . had
a computer awhile back that did strange things after a few weeks.
Re-install the OS and try again. Did this twice too many times. 

Some how, quite by accident I discovered that there was a bad sata
cable. Replaced the cable and the computer is still running today, about
two years later. 

We forget that we are dealing with mechanical as well as electronic
issues, not just software. A bad electrical connection, no matter how
minor, can be confusing and difficult to sort out. What if your problem
_is_ a bad sata I (one) cable and should be a SATAII cable? Have you
tested your memory (RAM)? Bad power supply . . . and the list goes on
and on. 

Well, I think you get the idea. 

Just my two cents . . .

Ok, if Rowland says they aren't an issue then I'm moving forward. I'll recompile 4.3.3 and overwrite my existing install, then fire up samba and see what happens. My guess is it fails all over itself at which point I'll make sure samba process is stopped and follow the restore guidelines in the wiki to restore an older copy of the database. Fingers crossed I can raise this thing from the dead. Thanks again everyone, really appreciate the community
stepping up to help out. JS On Mar 3, 2016 4:02 PM, "Rowland penny" <rpenny at samba.org <mailto: rpenny at samba.org>> wrote: On 03/03/16 20:33, IT Admin wrote: I do have the 4.3.3 sources. The only configure flag i set was --enable-debug. I can execute that install, however the issue of unwanted libs still lingers. I'm confused, is it or is it not an issue that i have libtld, libtalloc and pytalloc libs in /usr/lib? And if it is an issue whats the best path forward to resolve it? JS No, I don't think it is a problem, except for libtld and that is only because I have never heard of it :-) Do you mean libldb ?
