My environment is Ubuntu 10.10
I'm setting /etc/security/limits.conf, also enable pam_limits.so module.
* soft nofile 64000 * hard nofile 65000
But it's not working.
Login as root and 'ulimit -n' it display 1024.
But I add a
root soft nofile 64000 root hard nofile 65000
Login as root and it works.
Why the asterisk not work?
