Solaris Resource Manager 1.3 System Administration Guide

Creating the Limits Database

The Solaris Resource Manager startup file (/etc/init.d/init.srm) will create an initial limits database when invoked for the first time or at any boot if the file is missing.

The limits database typically resides in the /var/srm directory.

The limits database should be owned by root, group owned by root, and readable only by the owner. Write permission is not required since only kernel code with superuser credentials writes to the file.

Caution - Caution -

If a user can write to the Solaris Resource Manager limits database, system security may be compromised.
