PTS_LISTMAX(1) AFS Command Reference PTS_LISTMAX(1)

NAME

pts_listmax - Displays the max user id and max group id counters

SYNOPSIS

pts listmax [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt] [-config <config directory>]

pts listm [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-f] [-h] [-a] [-e] [-co <config directory>]

DESCRIPTION

The pts listmax command displays the values of the "max user id" and "max group id" counters, which the Protection Server uses to track the AFS user IDs (AFS UIDs) it allocates to new users or machines, and the AFS group IDs (AFS GIDs) it allocates to new groups, respectively. When an administrator next issues the pts createuser command and does not include the -id argument, the new user or machine receives an AFS UID one greater than the "max user id" counter, and when a user issues the pts creategroup command and does not include the -id argument, the new group receives an AFS UID one less (more negative) than the "max group id" counter.

To reset one or both counters, members of the system:administrators group can issue the pts setmax command.

-localauth
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).
-noauth
