I worked through this problem once, long ago, and turned
the solution over to the person who needed it, and promptly
erased it from my brain. Well, I have to solve it again.
The problem is that there is a limit to the number of NFS
directories you can mount. Perhaps this limit applies to
all "mounted" file systems. There is some constant
somewhere, I just can't remember it or find it with grep.
I need to mount at least 120 exported paths
onto a box. I also need to do the same thing with
a Sparc 20 running SunOS 5.5.1.
Another issue was the fact that if I set rsize=wsize=8192
on so many mounted nfs paths, I had a problem with running
out of memory; stack overflows I think, as opposed to free
memory. Is this a known problem that has been addressed
