Set 'max open files' to a larger number. If you don't set it, the
default is 10000. However, on many systems it will be set to the lower
of max open files or rlim_fd_max.
Your best option would be to recompile Samba as a 64-bit application
or upgraded to 2.2.8a.
I posted a patch to samba-technical back in January 2001 that would
allow you to set max open files to the *larger* of max open files or
rlim_fd_max instead of the smaller of the two settings.
