I've had to re-install my Kerberos/LDAP installation which provides
authentication for OpenAFS. As part of this process, the admin user
has been given a new ID. Is it possible to delete and re-create the
admin user with the new ID in OpenAFS?


pts delete admin
pts createuser -name admin -id $NEW_ID

And then change ownership on all of the admin user's files.

I'm guessing there's not a way to change the ID of a user?

One more thing is there an upper limit on the IDs that can be used by OpenAFS?
