ERROR: Integer overflow on computing amount of memory required. A request to allocate 28439.9M bytes of memory can not be
My sas code is as follows:
proc mixed data=sasfile06 method=ml covtest nobound;
model ROA=INDUSTRY YEAR/s intercept;

The error message is pretty clear: SAS wants 28 GB of RAM (!!) to do the requested calculations. If you think the amount of data you are processing doesn't justify this and the message is unjustified, the best thing to do is contact tech support.
