Description Peter Eriksson 2019-09-10 06:53:59 UTC
Our AD environment currently has 120k users (growing around 10-20k/year). 

The nfsuserd "-usermax" command line switch is compile-time limited to 100000 (100k).

It would be great if this arbitrary limit could be increased to something like 500k or so... Or removed, or only checked if set to something other than 0.

And shouldn't nfsuserd print an error if it runs into this limit? The way I read the code it now just silently gives up on adding users to the kernel cache...
