How to set Kernel Parameters in AIX ?

Unlike many other UNIX operating systems, AIX does not provide the ability to directly configure most kernel parameters. Instead, the AIX kernel dynamically allocates and reallocates resources as they are needed (up to a predefined limit).

To see all the current values assigned to the kernel parameters, enter:

# lsattr -E -l sys0

or

# smit chgsys ( Change / Show Characteristics of Operating System)

To see the current values assigned to for example maxuproc, enter:

# lsattr -E -l sys0 -a maxuproc
maxuproc 128 Maximum number of PROCESSES allowed per user True

To change the value assigned to maxuproc parameter, enter:

# chdev -l sys0 -a maxuproc=1000
sys0 changed

or

# smit chgsys

The following is another command that writes system wide configuration variable values to the standard output:

# getconf -a

This was due to less maxuproc processes which later changed to higher value i.e.  8192 per user, and issue resolved.
 
Unlike many other UNIX operating systems, AIX does not provide the ability to directly configure most kernel parameters. Instead, the AIX kernel dynamically allocates and reallocates resources as they are needed (up to a predefined limit).
To see all the current values assigned to the kernel parameters, enter:
# lsattr -E -l sys0
or
# smit chgsys ( Change / Show Characteristics of Operating System)
To see the current values assigned to for example maxuproc, enter:
# lsattr -E -l sys0 -a maxuproc
maxuproc 128 Maximum number of PROCESSES allowed per user True

To change the value assigned to maxuproc parameter, enter:
# chdev -l sys0 -a maxuproc=1000
sys0 changed 

or
# smit chgsys
The following is another command that writes system wide configuration variable values to the standard output:
# getconf -a
 
To get IBM AIX Server Details,

# prtconf | more

To Unlock user in AIX,

# chuser unsuccessful_login_count=0 <username>

# chuser account_locked=false <username>

To start X11 in AIX

Turn on X11Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restart sshd.


Find X11Forwarding and make sure its uncommented and set to yes.

X11Forwarding yes

#stopsrc -s sshd; startsrc -s sshd


vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
