Description Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-07-15 12:35:56 CEST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #32415 +++
In several environments he saw Samba4 opened about 6 files per client-connection, where the default limit (ulimit) is always set to 1024. He had to increase the ulimits on most servers.

a) Samba has its own mechanism to overwrite the limit: Bug #26277
b) r47352 is wrong: Note the double "user"
-	security/limits/user/.*/soft/nofile?'8192' \
-	security/limits/user/.*/hard/nofile?'8192' \
+	security/limits/user/default/user/soft/nofile?'8192' \
+	security/limits/user/default/user/hard/nofile?'8192' \
                        ^^^^         ^^^^
The limit is currently not applied:
# grep ^[^#] /etc/security/limits.conf
@"Domain Users"   hard     nproc    1000

# python -c 'from univention.config_registry.frontend import ConfigRegistry, ucr_update;P="security/limits/user/default/";ucr_update(ConfigRegistry(), {P+"user/hard/nofile":None,P+"user/soft/nofile":None,P+"hard/nofile":"32768",P+"soft/nofile":"32768",})'
# grep ^[^#] /etc/security/limits.conf
default           soft     nofile   32768
default           hard     nofile   32768
@"Domain Users"   hard     nproc    1000
Comment 1 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-08-28 15:18:25 CEST
fixed the ucr default to 

+       'security/limits/default/user/soft/nofile'?'32768' \
+       'security/limits/default/user/hard/nofile'?'32768'

merged to UCS 4.0
