I have an issue with ulimits on ubuntu server 12.04 .
I've set a custom ulimit for open files .
root soft nofile 20000
root hard nofile 60000
This setting doesn't work , i've tried setting >pam_limits.so in /etc/pam.d/common-session
But still , nothing .
I want to mention that setting a limit for an user , on root it has the same value .
If you set all (*) the root limits works .
I want to set the limits only for the root account .
Anyone had this issue ? Does pam.d have any effect on this ?
Thanks , Alin
