no locks available

I'm getting the same messages that Bob Davis got on our mail server which is:

SYSERR(root): cannot lockf(/etc/mail/aliases.db, fd=9, type=1, omode=37777777777, euid=0): No locks available.

Did increasing the nflock help? And if so, what would I increase it too? Right now it is set to 200.

Re: no locks available

Hi,
when we had this problem a while back we doubled our nflock to 400 without impact on the rest of the system.
