This question has already been asked in the past, but there was
no answer.

The above message is logged quite often in /var/log/samba/log.samba-dcerpcd.
This is a stand-alone anonymous read-only server.

Is it something to worry about?  It smells like samba isn't working

If yes, how can I fix it?

If no, how can I stop samba from logging un-interesting messages?

What dcerpcd is used for to begin with?  I don't remember it running
before (but iirc it is a new thing in 4.16).
