The problem is not SAMBA specific. Well, sort of... As Solaris does have
rather low default limit of 1024 file descriptors per process and you
might be hitting it first (unless you've tuned the rlim_fd_max). In
either case
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q190/1/62.ASP is the
way to work the problem around.
