Active Directory binding continuously resets when monitoring is enabled
My system is bound to a Windows Server 2016 domain for authc. If I enable monitoring in the AD settings, the bind resets itself every few minutes, which in turn restarts smbd, disconnecting all CIFS connections. It also behaves as if there are multiple processes doing the health check. If I disable monitoring, the AD connection works fine.
I've attached two logs. The first is /var/log/messages with normal logging (not verbose), showing how the connection is resetting. The second is with verbose logging enabled, starting when I click "Save" on the AD configuration dialog.

Hal: thanks for the update. I'll go ahead and close this ticket as unchecking that box seems to have resolved the issue for your scenario.

Dru, I appreciate you looking through this. My read is that the monitoring feature exists for a reason - to help systems that have binding stability issues - but that it's counterproductive if AD is already stable, because the monitoring is throwing a false positive. In that case, wouldn't it be prudent to put a warning into the info tooltip so that users with stable binds don't accidentally cause problems for themselves (like I did)?
