Funny that, if you look here:


Under 'smb.conf changes'

You will find:

prefork children                   New                     1

And if you search Samba 4.6.x 'man smb.conf' for 'prefork children', it
isn't found.

I tried to help you by pointing out that posting the output of
'testparm -v' wasn't helpful, I have also never vented my anger, you
would have know if I had.
You however, just keep responding with snide remarks.

I must ask you to stop replying in such tones, if not I will have to get
your mailing list account deleted.
