[OpenAFS] pts create cross realm users
Thu, 29 Jul 2010 13:48:09 +0200
I have run into a problem creating cross realm users for our cell. It all goes
fine until the username exceeds a certain length. For example:
pts createuser -name email@example.com -cell informatik.uni-
User firstname.lastname@example.org has id 1638879
pts createuser -name email@example.com -cell informatik.uni-
pts: Badly formed name (group prefix doesn't match owner?) ; unable to create
The documentation states that the username can consists of up to 63
characters. Thus I presume that the cell name is added to the username which
indeed would exactly reach the length limit. Is that presumption correct?
Is there any way to add users with longer usernames to our cell?
Unfortunately, the Kerberos principals are mostly build like
"firstname.lastname" and also our cell name is quite long.
Thanks and regards,
