    set file descriptor limit for xinetd initiated process

    828418
      I am starting the amanda backup service on clients through xinetd and we
      are hitting the open file limit, ie file descriptor limit.

      I have set resource controls for the user and I can see from the shell that
      the file descriptor limit has increased, but I have not figured out how to get
      the resource control change to apply to the daemon started by xinetd.

      The default of 256 file channels persists for the daemon, I need to increase
      that number.

      I have tried a wrapper script, clearly doing it incorrectly for Solaris 10/SMF
      services. That route didn't work, or is not as straight forward as it used to be.

      There is a more direct way ?

      Thanks - Brian
