pts_setmax - Sets the value of the max group id or max user id counter
pts setmax [-group <group max>] [-user <user max>] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help]
pts setm [-g group max>] [-u <user max>] [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-f] [-h]
The pts setmax command sets the value of one or both counters that track the IDs the Protection Server allocates to new users,
or groups: the
max user id counter for the AFS user IDs (AFS UIDs) assigned to users and machines,
max group id counter for the AFS group IDs (AFS GIDs) assigned to groups.
Use the pts listmax command to display the current value of both counters.
max group id counter.
Precede the value with a hyphen to indicate that it is negative.
When an administrator next uses the pts creategroup command to create a group entry and does not include that command's -id argument,
the Protection Server assigns the group an AFS GID one less (more negative) than this value.
max user id counter.
When an administrator next uses the pts createuser command to create a user or machine entry and does not include that command's -id argument,
the Protection Server assigns the group an AFS UID one greater than this value.
Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).
Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /usr/afs/etc/KeyFile file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).
Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).
The following command sets the
max group id counter to -500 and the
max user id counter to 1000.
% pts setmax -group -500 -user 1000
The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
