I am trying to install oracle 11g on ubuntu 16.04 after setting oracle 11g xe kernel parameters successfully

# Oracle 11g XE kernel parameters  


net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range=9000 65000  

kernel.sem=250 32000 100 128 


I used sudo service procps start which doesn't give any response like procps start/stop and when I use command sudo sysctl -q fs.file-max It shows the default number 383667 and not the one I set

and when I set explicitly sysctl -w fs.file-max=6815744

I get error sysctl: permission denied on key 'fs.file-max'


To address the title question: you did not use sudo, on that command.

  • I did use sudo. Actually I solved the problem by executing the command "sudo service procps restart" – user8716806 Apr 17 at 7:37
