Hi, I am new to this list, and am really stumped on this issue with my samba servers. I woould really appreciate some help.

I am having the same type of issue. I was copping a huge set of files over to my samba server, and now, neither server works.

1) RH 7.1 running Samba, SSH, HTTPD
2) RH 7.1 running Samba, SSH, HTTPD

The file trasfer crashed due to lack of space on both machines, and when I woke, neither server wants to be seen using any type of file sharing. After clearing up the hard disk, because it dumped all the files I was copping over into / after the dest. partition was full, I tried samba again. I am getting the "requested 10000 open files, only 1014 available." error in the samba log. Under a port scan, it shows netbios-ssn working, so that's available and there.

I made sure lokkit was set to no firewall, and then even uninstalled it.

Any ideas? I have been pounding away at this for 4 days now, and am going insane.


Exact Error:
[2001/11/20 01:12:04, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(215)
  file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 1014 are available.
