Userid Length

Userid Length

Post by ipcch.. » Thu, 06 Apr 2000 04:00:00

As I know the max length of userid is 8. However I am managing a site
with over 200 thousand users (using Netscape Directory Server + Solaris
Extension + NIS). I would like to set the max length of userid larger
but don't know how. Any suggestion? Please send me emails

1. Q: Userid Length

What is the length limit for Linux userids?

I've created ids longer than 8 characters, but I can't log in to the
created accounts.  Do I need to obtain updated login source?
