For various reasons, we have chosen to move from using PAM/LDAP to local accounts on some machines. However, to be ready for a possible move back to a PAM/LDAP environment, we would like to keep the UIDs and GIDs matched to what we have in our eDir environment. The problem is, the UIDs and GIDs in our eDir environment come from our central campus IT group and they exceed the number 60000.

Does anyone know of a means to get SLES9 and OES to accept UIDs and GIDs greater then 60000?
