is there a limit to the number of windows shares that can be mounted via smbfs?


i have 11 mount points in my /etc/fstab that point to directories on my windows machine. unfortunately, i cannot condense them as they're spread out on multiple drives.

i think that it is causing a problem with samba, since whenever i try to mount the 11th mount point, i get the following error:

Code:
1448: session setup failed: ERRDOS - 71
SMB connection failed

i was wondering if there is any restriction to the number of windows mounts i can declare, and if so, if there's any way to circumvent this.

it seems that windows itself is refusing the connection (i'm using xp pro, btw), because when i specify another username in fstab that does not exist on the windows machine, it actually does give me an Access Denied error. i've tried creating multiple accounts for the mount points to no avail.

i can't find anything besides this on the topic and there is no response to the guy's question.

ERRDOS, 71, NT_STATUS_REQUEST_NOT_ACCEPTED

I doubt it is a Windows limit (unless Windows XP is different), I have had way more than 11 shares on Windows 2000 server.

i think there's a difference between the pro and server families. i'd love to find out if there's a way to circumvent this if it's definitely the case, which it seems to be.

Yes it is a windows limitation and AFAIK XP is no different. You can only have 10 concurrent connections to a workstation at a time.

Whatever links I found for a hack have disappeared.
