Oracle Linux 8 : Linux Ignores Values Defined in /etc/security/limits.conf When Using VNC
(Doc ID 2858111.1)
Last updated on APRIL 06, 2022
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 8.0 to Oracle Linux 8.5 [Release OL8 to OL8U5]
When establishing a VNC session to a KVM Guest hosting Oracle Linux 8, "ulimit -a" command does not accurately reflect values defined in /etc/security/limits.conf file.
There is no alternate configuration file under /etc/security/limit.d/ that might override entries set in /etc/security/limits.conf file.
SSH to OL8 KVM host reflects the values correctly.
The issue is solely manifested when using VNC and connecting to OL8 Gnome-Terminal.
Illustrating the problematic :
Checking "max locked memory" value in /etc/security/limits.conf
