Server 2008 r2
services for unix

When setting up a new user on the UNIX attributes tab it auto-completes a UID this is the next number from a counter on the system
This was set to a 5 digit number but all of our UIDs are in the 2000 range how can i reset this counter so it get the next 2000 uid and not 10000 uid

Thanks.

The solution to this issue is to use ADSI edit to edit
CN=Domain,CN=Ypservers,CN=ypserv30,CN=rpcservices,CN=system,DC=domain,DC=com
In this object there are 2 attributes
msSFU30MaxUidNumber
msSFU30MaxGidNumber
Setting these to 1 will reset the counter and then when you add the next number it will go up from there.
