The pts listmax command displays the values of the "max user id" and
"max group id" counters, which the Protection Server uses to track the
AFS user IDs (AFS UIDs) it allocates to new users or machines, and the AFS
group IDs (AFS GIDs) it allocates to new groups, respectively. When an
administrator next issues the pts createuser command and does not
include the -id argument, the new user or machine receives an AFS UID
one greater than the "max user id" counter, and when a user issues the
pts creategroup command and does not include the -id argument, the
new group receives an AFS UID one less (more negative) than the "max
group id" counter.
To reset one or both counters, members of the system:administrators group
can issue the pts setmax command.
