I compiled a server whose startup script calls ulimit twice, and both times I get an operation not permitted error. In RH 7.2, how can I make a list of users (or a group) that can use ulimit so that I don't have to run as root?

You can set up sudo and /etc/sudoers file to give certain users certain rights; another way is setup a group admins with
groupaddb -r admins
it creates system account group (with gid <= 499)
and then add users to this group with
usermod -G gid_of_admins user_name
gid_of_admins can be found in /etc/group file (three-digit number)
and change perms on ulimit with
chown root:admins /path/to/ulimit; chmod 750 /path/to/ulimit
in this case only root and admins group would be able to execute ulimit

I wanted to use the new group approach, but I discovered ulimit is a built-in command without an executable file. Can I still do it this way?

Then probably sudo is the best solution
