Reserved UIDs

Is 0-99 considered the official reserved UID range for HP?

I've seen them as high as 499, but I believe only for RHEL.

Thx.

Re: Reserved UIDs

John,

It is recommended to not use 0-99 for UID and GID. See the following link.

Re: Reserved UIDs

Hi John:

While the documentation says UIDs in the 0-99 range are reserved, the actual range is a bit larger, in practice.

See the commentary in this recent thread:
