- Subject: UID problem - ssh with a user with a large uid fails
I have installed OpenSSh on a Win2k server.
I'm able to ssh with Administrator or user1, but with user2 and user3 I
get "closed by remote host" immediately after I login.
ssh -N work without problem.
I notice that in the event viewer I get "Cannot find account for uid
2505." But the uid for that user is 133577
Here are the passwd record for that user
Notice the diffrence between 133577 and 123577
The main difference between user1 and user2 & user3 is that in user1,
the user part in the SID is smaller.
Is there any limitation in the user part of the SID?
