This is a limit in the kernel, and the limit exists for NFS
You can however increase the limit by putting the following in
/etc/system and rebooting:
set ngroups_max=<your new limit>
On Solaris 9 the limit is 16 groups. You can verify how many groups are
accepted by the system by running the command: getconf NGROUPS_MAX
