I wonder if anybody has heard about this problem. We have a customer
set up with open desk top 3.0 (3.2.4) licensed for 32 users. We have
never ha 32 unique users on the system, but do have upwards of 55
processes that talk to serial ports connected to modems. All of these
have a database open. All of these processes are the same user ID.
( I can only assume this counts as one user) When ten additional
(individual) users login and run the forground application (which also
opens the same databases), the 10th user gets an EPERM error upon
attempting the database open. (Ctree Plus is being used for the
database) Of course the file permissions on the database file are
When someone logs out, or if we terminate one of the poll processes,
we can successfully open the database without the EPERM. What's
going on?? this is a 32 user system. (the failure occurs suspiciously
close to the magic number 64)
Any insight would be appreciated.
