Sun Managers have come through once again. The concensus was to go to

into the kernel configuration file and add the option. I was cautioned however

Hello Managers,

I need to know how to find out what the shared memory and semaphore
parameters are set to and how to change them. I am particularly interested
in SEMMSL. I am running SunOS 4.1.2. I can't seem to find any documentation
on this anywhere. If I were running Solaris 2.x, I'd be all set. I'm sure
that some of you have done this before. I will summarize.

Thanks in advance,

Many thanks to all of you who responded. You were a great help. Too many to
mention individually.
