Hp-Ux Max number of user accounts

Hi Team,

I am currently checking an environment and a concern come to my mind. Is there any maximum number of user accounts that can be created to the Hp-ux OS? Currently we are running around 4000 and we intend to increase it to 4500.

Please let me know your throughts around this so we can proceed with the necessary steps.

Thanks in advance for your help so far.

Best Regards,

Dave

Re: Hp-Ux Max number of user accounts

Man 4 passwd states that the uid must be between 0 and UID_MAX-1. Man 5 limits states that UID_MAX is 2147483647+ but then goes on to say "A particular system might be capable of supporting more than 2147483647 user or group IDs, in which case its file sets UID_MAX to a higher value.

You've got a way to go yet.
