Description:

When the max size(2147483647) is set to the AllowedUidRange token in seos.ini file and a user is created,an error may be showed.

Solution:

eTrust> eu test1 unix password(test1)
(localhost)
Successfully created USER test1
(localhost)

Unix :
====
ERROR: Failed to create USER test1
Cannot add/update to an existing user (UID exists)

The max size of AllwedUidRange token is LONG int.
So the limitation is 2147483647.

However,if memory allocation failes due to out of resources,the error is showed. *In the next CR15,the following error is showed instead of "Cannot add/update to an existing user (UID exists)".
"There is not enough space on file system".
