Are there any hard limits on the user and groups ID? The man page says noth=
ing about it.
My plan was to use winbinds SID-to-UID algorithm to create the ID and just =
negate them for groups. This will create high numbers like 2060593714. I ha=
ve tried to create users and groups with these and it doesn't complain. Wil=
l I bump into a road block with this setup?

Best regards
