limits.conf not being read when logging in
I have 2 entries in my limits.conf,
* hard nofile 10240 * soft nofile 4096
ulimit -Sn or
ulimit -Hn only displays the default values.
gabriel@server:~$ ulimit -Sn 1024 gabriel@server:~$ ulimit -Hn 4096
It works fine on one server but on another it’s as if they’re being ignored.
I did have a problem with
apt-get autoremove for some old kernels on this one server which I didn’t have on the other, I didn’t note it down but I’m quite able to reboot.
