Windows 2000 trouble?

I am experiencing some trouble with W2K and at times NT loosing mapping to
drives on a Sun Unix, Solaris 2.6 server.  Time outs on W2K cause connection
to drives to be lost.  Drives loose connection when pc systems reboots.  I
am running Samba 1.9.17p3.  All has worked fine until lately, when some
people began implementing W2K, however, this seems to be effecting some NT

Here is a small sample from my lib/log file

Gethostbyaddr failed for

ERROR! Out of file structures - perhaps increase MAX_OPEN_FILES?

Are there any known problems with using W2K?  Any advice?
