Unhappy Error 27 while loading shared libraries: libdb-4.3.so on RHEL 5


Hello everyone,

Recently I came across this error while booting up our RHEL 5 server:

Starting send mail:/ user/ sbin/sendmail:error while loading shared libraries libdb-4.3.so cannot open shared object. error-27

sm-client:/ user/ sbin/sendmail:error while loading shared libraries libdb-4.3.so cannot open shared object. error-27


Also, while creating a new squid user, I get the same error:

htpasswd /etc/squid/squid_passwd alok

htpasswd: error while loading shared libraries: libdb-4.3.so: cannot open shared object file: Error 27



The libdb-4.3.so file exists in my /usr/lib.
When I looked up for error code 27, it says
" File too large ". I thought maybe its because of the number of users. But even after removing some duplicate user accounts, I still can't figure out why the error remains.
Can anyone here help me out with this problem please?

Regards
Alok

/usr/lib/libdb-4.3.so -> /lib/libdb-4.3.so

Suggest : # yum reinstall db4

.. Will replace /lib/libdb-4.3.so , and refresh the link in /usr/lib/

Hey thanks for the quick response.
So you think that, re-installing the db4 package should get rid of the error right? I post updates
