Why is our [httpserver] maxThreads limit parameter in server.conf not being applied?

Path Finder

We were receiving errors similar to this message due to running out of http rest connections on some of our Splunk indexers.

11-16-2015 09:38:15.180 -0500 WARN  HttpListener - Can't handle request for /services/server/info, max thread limit for REST HTTP server is 1023, threads already in use is 1023

We referenced an article on this site (https://answers.splunk.com/answers/322462/why-are-our-rest-limits-so-low-how-do-we-change-th.html?ut...) that linked back to this documentation: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/Troubleshooting/HTTPthreadlimitissues

We made the config changes in the /etc/system/local/server.conf like below:

[httpserver]
maxThreads = 65536

However, it doesn't appear to have stuck and we are still seeing the max thread issue errors. Any ideas?

The was a spelling mistake on the website should have been a upper case S in Server

[httpServer]
maxThreads = 65536
