Winbind errors in working Samba server

Posted on

Hello all,

I'm configuring a new Samba server on RHEL 8 connected to our AD and it works just fine. My only hesitation in rolling it out is an error that keeps popping up in the winbind logs:


[2022/05/12 14:47:42.516843, 1] ../../source3/winbindd/idmap_tdb_common.c:138(idmap_tdb_common_allocate_id)
Error allocating a new GID
[2022/05/12 14:47:42.516918, 1] ../../source3/winbindd/idmap_tdb_common.c:66(idmap_tdb_common_allocate_id_action)

Fatal Error: GID range full!! (max: 9999999)

Despite the error, it seems to be working really well. Is this ignore-able? Should I switch back to SSS? I only used winbind as it seemed to be the recommended method for RHEL8.

TIA for any insight.

Bill
