Only thing wrong there is that you may be using the '.local' domain
(unless it is has been changed to hide the real domain). If it is the
real domain, remove Avahi if it is installed.


I would change it to this: nic-mail.niccolai.local nic-mail
10.0.0.? mail.niccolaitrafile.it mail   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

Create a virtual network interface for the '10.0.0.?' address and
assign a 'IP'. Create a CNAME record for nic-server-mail to
nic-mail.niccolai.local, create a CNAME record for sogo to

To be done

Uncomment the 'forwarders' lines, I would just use the Google ones.


zone "niccolai.homelinux.org" IN {
         type master;
          file "homelinux";
          allow-update { none; };
#        allow-transfer {; };
          notify yes;
Remove the above zone, you do not seem to be using it.


zone "niccolaitrafile.it" IN {
         type master;
          file "niccolaitrafile.it";
          allow-update { none; };
#        allow-transfer {; };
#        notify yes;

Uncomment the above line, you need it.


          socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE TCP_KEEPIDLE=120
You should let Samba set the above line for you.

Done (commented line)

I no longer use the Sernet packages, but can you check if there are any
other Sernet Samba packages available (Debian has one called
samba-dsdb-modules) and install them.

I am not saying that the changes I suggest will cure your problem, but
the should not make anything worse either.


So far, with all cleaning you suggested except file hosts (I will do it in the next days, and thank you!) the problem remains.

I did a simple script which runs every 5 minutes in crontab, and check if wbinfo -u returns no lines, in this case it restart samba. Is the only temporary solution I did find by now... I see it restart samba 4/5 a day, in different hours, also by night without operational users.

Here is the script:
[root@nic-mail niccolai]# cat script_riavvio_samba.sh
if [ $(wbinfo -u | wc -l) -eq 0 ];
echo "Riavviato il servizio";
/usr/bin/systemctl restart sernet-samba-ad;

Doing this, I have no more complaints from users about share not reacheable, or AD login not performed, and so on...

I have no resource problem:
[root@nic-mail niccolai]# free
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem:       12139548     2649440      573128      202884 8916980     8830260
Swap:       5177340        1796     5175544

The server is doing a lot of other things without a problem, it started to have problems only with samba and only recently, I have no more clues...

Thank you for your indications!
