I've seen this before -- did you compile Samba 64-bit? Is your Solaris
I've seen this happen when a 32-bit Samba daemon has more than 256
files open and then calls fopen to open the log file. The error
message is very misleading.
If 'isainfo -v' returns
64-bit sparcv9 applications
32-bit sparc applications
You can build a 64-bit samba.
For Sun's Forte compiler
CC=cc; export CC # setenv CC cc for csh
CFLAGS='-xarch=v9a'; export CFLAGS # setenv CFLAGS '-xarch=v9a' for csh
For GCC 3.x or better
CC=gcc; export CC # setenv CC gcc
CFLAGS='-m64'; export CFLAGS # setenv CFLAGS '-m64'
