Solaris Resource Manager 1.3 System Administration Guide


No single symptom can reliably be used to determine whether the limits database has been corrupted, but there are a number of indicators that potentially reflect a corrupted limits database:

If an administrator suspects that there is corruption in the limits database, the best way to detect it is to use limreport to request a list of lnodes with attributes that should have values within a known range. If values outside that range are reported, corruption has taken place. limreport could also be used to list lnodes which have a clear flag.real. This will indicate accounts in the password map for which no lnode exists.
