Ottawa is my home now since July 2007: a beautiful, cosmopolitan city with plenty of summer festivals and open space throughout the city reserved for parks, beaches and cycling paths which I use extensively in the seasonal months both as leisure activity and to go to and from work.

Professionally, I'm currently working with a consulting group, whom specialize in Microsoft SharePoint and content management, as the group's Infrastructure Administrator and with our customers as a SharePoint Integration and Implementation specialist.

My career start goes back to the days of Digital Equipment Corporation in the early 1990's, and I have a plethora of experience and expertise with BSD, Linux, Windows, networking, firewalls, security and am, and have always been, an avid hobbyist when it comes to operating systems of any kind.

Spring, Summer and Fall I'm outside biking at every opportunity...

@DaveMG: sudo du -csh /var/log from a shell prompt will return the size of the /var/log folder.

@DaveMG df -h from a shell prompt will return disk-usage statistics so you can verify none of the disk partitions are at, or close to, 100% usage.

Oh and by the way, I tried changing the max user processes setting all the way down to 1024 and wasn't able to reproduce the error this way...thought I'd mention I tried that.

Hi Dave, A short note to let you know that I'll be able to follow-up again with you by the weekend. My day job keeps me busy into the evenings and so I thought I'd simply drop a courtesy note to you here to let you know I haven't disappeared. Leland
