This message occurs when the number of connections to the same share allowed per session nears the configured limit. Upon reaching this limit, any further requests to establish another connection to that share are denied until some connections to the share are released. This typically indicates abnormal client behavior.
- Corrective Action
Inspect the application using the connection, and also monitor the other applications on the client. The client might be operating incorrectly due to a faulty application running on it. Rebooting the client might also be helpful. In some cases, clients are operating as expected but require a higher threshold, which you can set by using the (privilege: advanced) "cifs option modify -max-same-tree-connect-per-session" command.
