CRITICAL EMERGENCY: rebooted system and now cannot bring up Cyrus server at all

I had to reboot the mail server and fsck the mail partition (280GB, 
156GB of mail), and when I tried to bring up Cyrus, I get the following 

Feb 28 15:06:57 belgarath master[2702]: setrlimit: Unable to set file 
descriptors limit to -1: Operation not permitted

This is the production mail server and was working fine up to the reboot 
(not a system crash).  It's critical I get this up since it is the 
primary mail server for the institution.  Any idea what might be going on?

(Thank God I can access my home server from campus or I couldn't even 
post this)
