Hello ,
I currently have samba and apache2 running on my V490 Sun server and when i do a ps -ef | grep smb it returns multiple processess, see below:
xyz@abcde # ps -ef | grep smb
    root   875   789   0   Apr 03 ?           0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D
    root   789     1   0   Apr 03 ?           0:17 /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D
    root 25595   789   0 07:59:58 ?           0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D
    root  5551 25992   0 08:49:28 pts/3       0:00 grep smb

Any reason why there is multiple processors running, i get this also for apache.

Hi,
samba uses one process per client connection, so what you see is normal behaviour.
Mutatis mutandis the same is true for apache.
