first, sorry Warren, for the bad diagnosis ...
the correct answer should have been:
I did not check when, where and how, but the
ulimit -u <#proc> option was changed between
2.4.21 and 22-pre in such way that
ulimit -H -u <#procs> may not decrease the
limit below the current soft limit ...
so if, and this time I'm sure ;), you have a
higher default ulimit (see ulimit -a), it
will not be possible to set the hard limit to
a lower value, unless you reduce the default
(soft) limit too ...
now for Darryls NFS issue ...
I would suggest to do the mount from
/mnt/nfs and add the folowing bind mounts
mount --bind /mnt/nfs/conf /etc/vservers
mount --bind /mnt/nfs/actual /vservers
and the permission stuff
chmod 000 /vservers/radius2/..
and of course, the ulimit will get you, if
you change to 2.4.22-pre, which I would
strongly advice, as many bugs where fixed.
