RE: Max UID's on RHEL 3



I think I might have found the answer on my own, I tested my RHEL 3
server and I was able to increase the UID_MAX to almost any number I
wanted and I was able to create accounts.  The server kept on
automatically assigning UID's to the accounts and I was able to login
with the accounts just fine.  I got all the way up to like 12345678901
as a uid and it allowed me to assign it. 

Anyone have any input on this at all good or bad about huge amounts of
accounts on a server?

Thanks all

Vince
