I am trying to raise the open file descriptor maximum for all users on an ubuntu machine.
This question is somewhat of a follow up to this question.
open file descriptor limits.conf setting isn't read by ulimit even when pam_limits.so is required
except that i've added the required "root" entries in limits.conf
Here are the entries
* soft nofile 100000 * hard nofile 100000 root soft nofile 100000 root hard nofile 100000
Lines related to
pam_limits.so have been un-commented in all relevant files in /etc/pam.d/ and
fs.file-max has been set correctly in /etc/sysctl.conf
However, I still see
abc@machine-2:/etc/pam.d$ ulimit -n 1024
What could be the problem?
My default shell is /bin/sh and i can't use chsh to change my default shell since the my user on the machine is authenticated via some distributed authentication scheme.
