The Samba server is running on an unpatched (Doh! That will change!)
SPARC Solaris 8 box.
Interesting lines from smb.conf are:
security = share
encrypt passwords = no
workgroup = [the resource domain that all clients and local file
servers reside in]
status = yes
preferred master = false
wins support = no
wins server = [ the wins server for our master domain ]
getwd cache = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
comment = UNIX home directories for 95/NT users
browseable = no
guest ok = no
writable = yes
create mode = 0755
path = /homes/%u
The path /homes/%u is automounted. Really, it is more along the lines of
/homes -> /somedir/homes0/homes
/homes/homes0/homes/bigbird -> /homes/homesX/bigbird
So, two automounts may be involved in getting a directory. I really think
that has nothing to do with it though. Just in case someone wants to
comment on "path = /homes/%u", I think that I will be getting rid of it as
it really doesn't do anything useful for us.
There are other shares as well. None are terribly interesting though.
At one point I thought that it may be running out of file descriptors...
When I do pfiles on a current 2.2.0 connection, I see:
# /usr/proc/bin/pfiles 5701
5701: /opt/samba-2.2/sbin/smbd -D -p 2222
Current rlimit: 10010 file descriptors
That's just under 10x the number I thought that the system could handle.
FWIW, 2.0.7 as an rlimit of 1024.
