Re: [Samba] After upgrade to 4.9.4, internal DNS no longer working




Hi Rowland,

I went back to the logs from before the upgrade to see if we didn't miss
anything.

If I understand the logs correctly, in the early morning of December 21
(3am), the server started running out of memory as was confirmed in the
logs with several Samba components complaining about NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY.
Here just one line as an example.

[2018/12/21 09:19:38.518542,  0]
../source4/dsdb/kcc/kcc_periodic.c:693(samba_kcc_done)
  ../source4/dsdb/kcc/kcc_periodic.c:693: Failed samba_kcc -
NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY

By the time I was able to work on this (around 9:30), the machine could no
longer be accessed and had to be rebooted via hard reset.

However, Samba started after this hard reset without any errors. Samba
actually remains error free for the next 1.5 days.

In the evening of the next day, I started the upgrade, at 19:10 to be
exact. And the following lines stands out:

[2018/12/22 19:13:44.916007,  0]
../lib/util/util_runcmd.c:327(samba_runcmd_io_handler)
  /usr/bin/samba_kcc: Traceback (most recent call last):

  ../source4/dsdb/kcc/kcc_periodic.c:693: Failed samba_kcc -
NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

These and some SIGTERM messages are the last lines in the Samba log before
the server is rebooted, and Samba is then started in version 4.9.4 - but
now with several errors.

While I really don't know if the lines above have any relevance, I believe
we may need to correct the assumption that something was wrong before the
update, it now much rather looks as if the update broke my DC. Do you
agree?
