this was my problem :

I got no answers from sun managers but one from Sun itself. And it sorted the
problem out. Here it is :
> ... bug 4011531 ypserv runs out of filed descriptors to workaround,
> increase the FD limit in the yp startup script. add this to the script

The script to edit is /usr/lib/netsvc/yp/ypstart.
Hope it helps,
