We have a 3.0.21c samba server in a PDC role with ldap as the backend
database, the server
has been working without any problem for several weeks, but today it's
started showing this log message:

[2006/11/20 09:40:48, 0] tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_log(772)
tdb(/usr/local/etc2/samba_SACOU/private/secrets.tdb): tdb_lock failed
on list 100 ltype=1 (Interrupted system call)
[2006/11/20 09:40:48, 0]
tdb_chainlock_with_timeout_internal: alarm (10) timed out for key
PDC10 in tdb /usr/local/etc2/samba/private/secrets.tdb
[2006/11/20 09:40:48, 0] tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_log(772)

some users couldn't do log in on the PDC, this is the related log;
[2006/11/20 09:41:08, 0] auth/auth_domain.c:domain_client_validate(206)
domain_client_validate: Domain password server not available.
[2006/11/20 09:41:08, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(317)
check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [trendo] -> [trendo]
[2006/11/20 09:41:08, 2] smbd/server.c:exit_server(614)
Closing connections

but surprinsigly other users could do log in on the PDC while the
previous error keeps on the logs:
[2006/11/20 09:41:08, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(307)
check_ntlm_password: authentication for user [evamolina] -> [evam] ->

[2006/11/20 09:41:08, 2] smbd/server.c:exit_server(614)
Closing connections

Any ideas?
