Is there any way of raising the ceiling on userID's on RedHat 6.2 ? I'm
hitting a limit of 64k and I need to raise it to at least 128k.
For example, if I add an two entries into /etc/passwd
I can login with user 'test1', but not with user 'test1'. Any ideas on
how I can raise the barrier much appreciated. A possible fix will allow
all authentications on this box to use NIS maps that are well
established and are working fine for all Solaris boxes.
