Lotus Sametime and /etc/security/limits.conf on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

If you see: -

WINUX: Please see /etc/security/limits.conf RECOMMENDATION: * hard nofile 65535
WINUX: Please see /etc/security/limits.conf RECOMMENDATION: * soft nofile 65535

then you'll probably find a reference to the Lotus Sametime 8.0.2 Information Center at: -

which directs one to add: -

soft    nofile          65535
hard    nofile          65535

to /etc/security/limits.conf and reboot.

However, on my own Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 server, this did not work until I added leading "*" symbols to both lines: -

*      soft    nofile          65535
*      hard    nofile          65535

and again rebooted.
