fedora core 2 /etc/secutiry/limits.conf


Hi, I have been installing oracle 10g on fedora core 2 according to a guide on the web (sorry cant post url cos forum wont let me, but you can get to it from oracle-base.com)


One part of this is

Add the following lines to the /etc/security/limits.conf file:

* soft nproc 2047
* hard nproc 16384
* soft nofile 1024
* hard nofile 65536

Add the following line to the /etc/pam.d/login file, if it does not already exist:

session required /lib/security/pam_limits.so


Now I do this, but when I ssh into this machine as anyone but root I get

[root@davelinux security]# ssh oracle@localhost
oracle@localhost's password:
Connection to localhost closed by remote host.
Connection to localhost closed.
[root@davelinux security]#

So I remove the stuff from limits.conf and it lets me in - what did that do and why did it stop me logging in?

Thanks

Dave

Asterisk means "match any user or groupname", don't use an asterisk, but try the Oracle username instead. IMNSHO you best ssh in as a unprivileged user, then sudo or su to user Oracle.
