Username cannot exceed 8 characters?

Hi to all. I have a problem. I want to add an user to UNIX Tru64 but it is a limit of 8 characters by default. I want to add users with "long" usernames. Can you tell me how I can increment the 8 character limit to at least 15 characters for a "username"??
Thanks.

Can't be done with support from HP.

Ignore my previous reply (although it's true). I couldn't reply most of this morning and now suddenly it worked.

I would have point to this thread (from this week): http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=850584
