Why isn't it working? What are (if any) the error messages?
AFAIK root always has full access and is unlimited (by default).

are you saying you can't support 20k parallel users? and you think this iss associated with `uimit` because of the number of open file descriptors? are you getting an error that you're going off of, or are you just punting?
