HBase needs a high nofile limit. What would be the preferred way to set the

Just call ulimit in the initscript?
The java process is started by "daemon" (Debian package "daemon").

Thank you,

Create an exclusive user for your daemon, and drop a file in /etc/security/limits.d with the following contents:

daemonuser  -  nofile <somenumber>

You should probably ask via debconf before doing it, though.
