Dear Experts:

Due to the windows 7 compatiblity installed samba 3.4 samba is working but when execute
testparm smb.conf
Load smb config files from smb.conf
rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)

Please suggest me how to set this rlimit_max so that this message does not appear. Thanks in advance.
