For the past six months, we are having users complain few of following issues. I have summarized the hardware and software specifications below as well. Please let us know your suggestions!

Symptoms        #  New Users cannot mount shares [ network exception / hung service ]. Some times existing users get kicked out. Samba connections spike up [ Sometimes go up to 1300 with in an hour ].
Resolution      # As of now we are restarting Samba which will eventually kill of all existing connections and users were able to connect back.
How frequent    # At least once in a month,  was more than twice in the month of May-2011.
OS              # SunOS Generic_117350-44 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880
Samba version   # 3.0.25a

I have also attached the smb.conf for better clarity!
