Hmmm. Can you try increasing the number of handles
by changing the line in rpc_server/srv_lsa_hnd.c from :

#define MAX_OPEN_POLS 64


#define MAX_OPEN_POLS 512

and see if you still get the error. If you get it after
a while it means we have a policy handle leak (which I
can't see immediately, but doesn't mean there is a code
path that may do this....

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
