You can limit the number of connected clients on a share using the "max
connections" directive in smb.conf. This is done on a per share basis
typically, and if set to 0 (the default), unlimited connections are
Unless you have added this directive to your smb.conf file, you should
not have a limit on user connections. Another option to check is the
"max smbd processes" option, a Global setting in smb.conf. That, if
present, can limit the number of smbd processes allowed to run - and
there is normally one process per connected client, plus the master
copy of smbd if running in daemon mode.
