I am planning to setup Novell CIFS and would like to know its limitation of concurrent connection.

According to Novell Doc, 1500 concurrent connection is the limit but it does not say per server or per cluster.

Does anyone know about the limitation of concurrent connection of Novell CIFS?
Please give me some advise?

Server: SLES10SP3 + OES2SP2
Clients: Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac, and Linux computers with NO Novell Clients
