limits.conf takes effect when the user authenticates, so you can just restart the service.

for sysctl.conf

Free BSD

sudo /etc/rc.d/sysctl reload

Other Distribution of Linux try:

sudo sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf

You will not have to worry about rebooting.

can you elaborate more on the problem? Are you taking backup or restoring? Are you using root account or normal user account? Can you share the command / script used?
