Package: winbind
Version: 2:4.9.5+dfsg-5+deb10u1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


I'm running Samba/Winbind on a dual Host setup (using drbd) where winbind is
running only on the currently active machine.

Unfortunately /etc/logrotate.d/winbind assumes that winbind is always
running which will produce weekly logrotate errors on the passive machine.

For this reason I propose the following change:

diff --git a/logrotate.d/winbind b/logrotate.d/winbind
index 43ae1af..21084e6 100644
--- a/logrotate.d/winbind
+++ b/logrotate.d/winbind

-                       /usr/bin/smbcontrol winbindd reload-config
-               elif [ -f /var/run/samba/winbindd.pid ]; then
-                       kill -HUP `cat /var/run/samba/winbindd.pid`
+               if [ -f /var/run/samba/winbindd.pid ]; then
+                       if [ -x /usr/bin/smbcontrol ]; then
+                               /usr/bin/smbcontrol winbindd reload-config
+                       else
+                               kill -HUP `cat /var/run/samba/winbindd.pid`
+                       fi
