Set maximum memory for user

Hi,

I have as Solaris 10 (x86) system. I want to set the maximum memory for the user
But the following comaand is valid only till next reboot.Pls let me know how to make it permanenent.
HTML Code:
prctl -n project.max-shm-memory -r -v 4G -i project 3

You can place that command in the startup/inittab
# 3  
I am no Solaris expert, so take this with some grain of salt:

There is a file in /etc (if i remember correctly "/etc/limits" or something such) where every user-specific limit is set. You can edit this file with a text editor.

I hope this helps.

I think you are referring to /etc/project .
