Arcsight logger for Linux 5.5

Hi All,

Please let me know. I have downloaded ArcSight Logger 6.

When I install this in my Red Hat Linux Enterpreise Linux 5.5 on virtual box, it shows below error.

"Installation Requirement  not met.

Pre-Install check failed: Your MaxDesc is failed 1024.

The Lower limit for open the descriptors is 65536."

Please advise.

Have you updated the 90-nproc.conf file as described in the installation guide.  Below is the snippet from the installation guide that covers this update. 

1 If you do not already have a file /etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf,

create one (and the limits.d directory, if necessary). If the file already exists,

delete all entries in the file.

2 Add the following lines:

*      soft      nproc      10240

*      hard     nproc      10240

*      soft      nofile      65536

*      hard     nofile      65536

3 Reboot the machine.

4 Run the following command to verify the new settings:

ulimit -a

5 Verify that the output shows the following values for Open files and Max user


     open files 65536

     max user processes 10240

After you have increased the user process limit and met the other prerequisites, you are ready to install Logger.
