Re: Couldn't delete entry! - net cache flush

I was having the same problem with /usr/bin/net getting hung up and not closing.  I have zabbix installed to monitor the server, and after a few days, the memory started getting full.  I started to notice this after installing btsync to sync some shares with windows computers.

Anyway, I thought about commenting out the cron.d line.  But I figure they added it for some reason (would be nice if someone from zentyal let us know why....).  So I decided to change the line to this:
Code: [Select]
nano /etc/cron.d/zentyal-samba
* * * * * root /usr/bin/timeout 50s /usr/bin/net cache flush > /dev/null

The timeout command will only allow the net command to run for a maximum of 50 seconds.  It seems to be working for me so far. 

Note: Timeout was already installed on my machine, however, you probably want to make sure it's installed on yours first.  Also, any future zentyal upgrade will probably overwrite the change...
