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 [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>]

DESCRIPTION

The pts listmax command displays the values of the max user id and max group id counters, which the Protection Service uses to track the AUNs it allocates to new users, machines and networks, and the AGNs 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, machine or network entry receives an AUN one greater than the max user id counter. When a user issues the pts creategroup command and does not include the -id argument, the new group receives an AGN 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.

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

-force

Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.

-help
