Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Technical Notes

This error occurs only on systems that support a larger range of user or group ID values than a declared member structure can support. This condition usually occurs because the IPC or file system object resides on a remote machine with a larger value of type uid_t, off_t, or gid_t than that of the local system.

The symbolic name for this error is EOVERFLOW, errno=79.
