You probably have the default HP-UX kernal values for nfiles and 
nflocks. You need to increase these for connecting more than 10 users. 
Here are formulas:

(10*maximum smbd)+(other apps + system)
example 1000 connected clients and baseline NFS system
(10*1000)+(2048) = 12048
((23+opens_per_smbd)*maximum smbd)+(other apps+system))
example 1000 connected clients and baseline NFS system
