Why do you have the status parameter set to no?  From the smb.conf
manual page:

       status (G)
              This  enables or disables logging of connections to
              a status file that smbstatus(1) can read.

              With this disabled smbstatus won't be able to  tell
              you  what  connections are active. You should never
              need to change this parameter.

              Default: status = yes

Counting the number of concurrent smbd processes requires the logging of
connections to the status file, connections.tdb.

Try removing 'status = no' from your smb.conf
