Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Channel number out of range


The system has run out of stream devices. This error results when a stream head attempts to open a minor device that does not exist or is currently in use.


Check that the stream device in question exists and was created with an appropriate number of minor devices. Make sure that the hardware corresponds to this configuration. If the stream device configuration is correct, try again later when more system resources might be available.
