    It's trying to modify the ulimit, and apparently can't
    Are you on as root (that is "admin" a user number 0 account)?

    Do a ulimit -a to see the ulimit - from the rest of the error I'd suspect number of open files.

    To find your UID, type


    at the console. If your UID is 0 then it is probably not a permission problem but maybe a kernel configuration problem? If your UID is something other then 0 then it's probably because you don't have permission to access it.

    Just as a side note, you really shouldn't have a UID of 0 for the admin user as it opens up more security risks.
