apache restart fails with error "httpd: bad user name nobody"





------- Additional Comments From trawick@apache.org  2003-07-16 12:59 -------
a truss of the server during the restart processing might be helpful

wild guess: Solaris user name lookup routines use stdio (which on Solaris has
the infamous 256-descriptor limitation), and at some intermittent point during
restart processing there are too many file descriptors open already, stdio gets
a descriptor > 255, and stdio fails to handle /etc/passwd properly
