1. Is there a limit on max number of connections to share? There
must be what's the max? 2. Is using force user, force group good
option here? 3. Is there limit on max number of files opened, Can
this issue be related to this? 4. Why in failing case it checking
'home dir, Printers'?

I think we need more info here:

What are the clients ?    Windows-7,10 machines

It looks like they are all using the same username to connect to
the share, is this correct ? Yes (catuser)

If it is correct, are they all using the same password ? yes

Is this standalone server in an AD domain ?  Standalone server

That doesn't answer the question, it just confirms what is already
know. What are the other machines in ? A workgroup, an NT4-style
domain, or an AD domain.

Do the clients that don't work have NTLMv1 turned off ?  This i
need to enquire, But I think No. Beacause issue happens randomly on
any of clients when connections reaches > 200 or so.

This would suggest that NTLMv1 isn't the problem, you could try
investigate setting 'max smbd processes' in smb.conf, see 'man
smb.conf' for more info.

 From the number of users you say you have, it would probably be better
to run your standalone server as a Unix domain member.

By "Unix domain member" you mean?:
