I'm quite familiar with running INN on Solaris systems, but I've never
encountered behavior like what you're describing.  (I admit I haven't
used ovdb under Solaris, though.)

Try using truss(1) to follow innd, ctlinnd, et. al. as you run them.
If they're blocking on something, that should give you a good idea
where and what.
