[OpenIndiana-discuss] Solaris cp problems

I am facing problems with the solaris cp command:

$ usr/bin/cp -pr <sourcedir> . is raising the following errors:

"cp: cannot create ./<SubdirOfTargetDir> too many open files"
"cp: cannot open <SomeFileInSubDirofSourceDir> too many open files"
"cp: Failed to preserve extended system attributes of directory"

Any idea how to fix that on 5.11 oi_151a i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris?



PS: I am using the Solaris cp command to have an easy way to preserve 
file attributes moving a share from one pool to the other of my CIFS
