Increasing ngroups_max to more than 16 in the /etc/system file may cause NFS problems.

Applies to:Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
The ngroups_max variable in the /etc/system file has been increased to more than 16. A new user has been created, and the user is a member of more than 16 groups. When the new user logs in, NFS complains that it cannot decode arguments, despite the systems involved having set ngroups_max > 16.
