max open files limit on Tru64

Hi all,

Where can I see and modify a max open files param on Tru64, 5.1B?
Seems like I have a Samba 3's start problem due to get the following msg:

[2006/02/02 17:10:47, 1] smbd/files.c:(207)
file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 4076 are available.

Re: max open files limit on Tru64

Wrong forum.

This may not be a real problem.
It indicates it is just a warning.
Two directions for a solution:

- lower the samba request trhough it's init files.

- increase the Tru64 limit through sysconfig .. proc ..
open_max_hard / open_max_soft

Do you think you really need more than 4000?

Check manpage for: sys_attrs_proc(5)

For further info google for: +tru64 +getdtablesize


open_max_hard and open_max_soft attributes in
