Thanks to all.

Parameters to set are:

general consensus was that 1024 for max was ok but be 
wary of going beyond that.  Some users I have seen 
have went to 4096 and seem to be ok, but I suppose it
is a matter of what binaries you choose to execute in
your environment.

I'm running solaris 8 and want to increase descriptors from 256
to 1024 to accomodate and oracle database. What parameters do I set in
/etc/system and are there any drawbacks/considerations.
