ulimit and prctl ....

while installing rac in zones we had a strange issue
when we tried to install the db with an sga > 4gb it gave a nice

ORA-27102
out of memory execption

we checked the project parameter and everything seemed ok....

execpt of the process.max-address-space
for some strange reason it was on 4Gb no mather to what we put it .....

STRANGE

after lots of investigation it seemed that  ulimit -v was called from a .bash_profile which limited the shell to 4Gb

once removed everything worked fine .....
