Core Dump


What is the easiest way to disable a core dump ? I have a F40 ( AIX 4.3.3 ) which has problems and generates a coredump almost daily. The server is gonna be replaced soon and I dont feel like walking in -2 degree weather to another building just to select 99 to cancel the core dump.

Thanks

MrP

Don't know how to turn it off completely, but I do know how to limit the size (say 0 bytes):

Change the stanza for the specific user (or global), set core = 0

There are 'nice' tools (chuser) to do this, but editing the file with your fav editor also works (/etc/security/limits).

Hope this helps.
