Hi David,

I've install gstack now, we should have more debugging should it happen 

And no, the tdb files are on XFS locally on each machine. I think this 
is an actual client smbd process in the above - one that got stuck and 
triggered a reboot as we have this in sysctl.conf:

# Reboot 5 seconds after panic
kernel.panic = 5

# Panic if a hung task was found
kernel.hung_task_panic = 1

# Setup timeout for hung task to 300 seconds
kernel.hung_task_timeout_secs = 1200

PS I didn't see any attachment.

Many thanks
