Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4751
major problem with kernel and nis limitations
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
YP is designed for 10.000 entries (=10.000 users). The
Linux kernel could
handle 65.000 users
YP will be slow, but it could only give problems with the
libgdbm, YP can handle 32bit UIDs, the kernel only 16bit
UIDs. So at first
we get a problem with the linux kernel.
Currently we are splitting our nis servers across several
isolated networks but this is certainly not the way to have
to continue for ever.
