Pinned topic Problem CIFS in Nseries

‏2010-02-24T12:56:50Z |
Hello.

I have a nSeries 6070 serving CIFS and when approximately 1500 users connect simultaneously, it stops giving service CIFS and it is necessary to restart the service.
This failure it has given two times, and coincides with the following informative message:

Severity: info
Event: cifs.stats.pBlkExhaust
Message: All CIFS control blocks for the STANDARD pool are in use. The request for a new control block can not be granted.

1500 users connect to the nSeries to execute the Logon Script simultaneously and in addition they create a mapping to a folder lodged at the nSeries

The version of nSeries is 7.3.1.1L1, and each controller has 70 HDD SATA (500Gb).

Which can be the problem?

Thaks

    There is a solution for this on the Netapp NOW site.
    You could place a service call with IBM and they will supply it to you, or send me a private message.

      Hi ,

       

      I need your expertise on nseries cifs issue, we keep encountering cifs issue (stop sergving data) below are the logs from etc

       

      Tue May  7 15:20:08 EST [RED-ems.engine.inputSuppress: Event 'cifs.stats.pBlkExhaust' suppressed 281458 times since Tue May  7 14:20:08 EST 2013.
