We just discovered that each linux group can hold only max users up to 1024 characters (/etc/groups line length).
My coworker set up ActiveDirectory and wants to map the groups and users (ca.2500) to those in AD. I am not very familiar with that so i just report what i heard and understood.
I guess in other intranets all the user permission management is done on application level but we were just curious if it would be possible with basic linux ( means glibc limitations ?)
Does it depend on NFS limits too, I guess?
Any pointers to some research are welcome, I did hard finding the right keywords Googling.
