max smbd processes

This parameter limits the maximum number of smbd
8 processes concurrently running on a system and is intended
as a stopgap to prevent degrading service to clients in the event that the server has insufficient
resources to handle more than this number of connections. Remember that under normal operating
conditions, each user will have an smbd
8 associated with him or her to handle connections to all
shares from a given host.

For a Samba ADDC running the standard process model this option
limits the number of processes forked to handle requests.
Currently new processes are only forked for ldap and netlogon

Example: 1000

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
