Samba and Linux - 256 sessions max

by cpfeiffe In reply to Samba and Linux - 256 ses ...

The samba configuration via smb.conf or SWAT, if you have SWAT installed can be modified in two places to affect this.

1) In the global area under Tuning Options there is a setting for maximum smbd processes. Each user that accesses a share getsan smbd process (plus the original one that is started when Samba is initialized). So you can set this to the number of connections you wish to allow for all shares + 1. If you set it to 0 it will allow unlimited access.

2) Under each share area under Tuning Options you have a setting for max connections. That adjusts the amount of connections you will allow to that share. Again 0, allows unlimited access.


Hope this helps.

Need to rephrase the question:

How can I get more than 256 mount points on
a Linux 2.4 kernal (Redhat v7.1)? Running
Samba on this machine and getting the
following error message:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on <server name>
>> or too many mounted file systems

Thanks
