I have been trying to setup a login.conf file in /etc
in order to raise the openfiles variable per process
I did read the man pages files and even searched using
google to find some doc.
I did this :
a) I did use chpass over the user, in order to put
the user inside the "defaut" class so the chpass username
looks a little like this :
Change [month day year]:
Expire [month day year]:
b) Since there was no login.conf file I did create one
as root. By checking the login.conf man page, I did
put the defaut name then on the next line I did put
the openfiles variable. Here below is man page example
and what I did put inside my /etc/login.conf file :
since it's the last line, no \ at the end and
I have tried with and without the "description entry"
c) Then, I did generate a new .db file using the command :
Problem is as soon those changes are done, no su nor any
login can be done.
The error is always :
pam_acct_mgmt: error in service module
I did try to read the man pages and make it work properly
but it doesnt work how I would like it to.
Has anyone a procedure or working example ?
unzip ; strip ; touch ; grep ; find ; finger ; mount ; fsck ; more ;
yes ; fsck ; umount ; sleep
