    samba testparm error

    Samba won't start and I've been googling for like an hour. Testparm gives me this error:

    rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)
    Error: Maximum include depth (100) exceeded!
    Error loading services.
    The first error from what I understand can be generally ignored because it is necessary for security purposes. But I could find absolutely nothing on maximum include depth try as I may. Anyone have any clues??

    How about a look at the /etc/samba/smb.conf file itself.

    Sorry I never replied. I figured out the problem and feel extremely stupid. You have to close the smb.conf file before starting the service (duh!).

    Yes closing the file is important.

    But we have all done that at one time or another.
