Hello

I'm in trouble with the /etc/security/limits.conf file at ETCH AMD64
it does not apply the following statement after rebooting the machine

* hard nofile 65536

the nofile ulimit value stay sticked at 1024

Anyone knows a workaround ?

Thanks a lot

First of all, can you manually change the ulimit value using ulimit -n?

Second: What happens if you add:

* soft nofile 65536

next to the hard limit?
