This configuration parameter applies to the AIX Loadable Authentication Module (LAM) and specifies the maximum number of Active Directory groups that the lsgroup ALL command will return.
The parameter value must be an integer. The default value for this parameter is 1000 groups. If you specify 0 or a negative value (for example, -1), there is no limit on the number of groups returned. For example:
Before changing this parameter setting or using a value of 0, you should consider its impact on your environment. Increasing the value of this parameter may provide more complete information about the number of Active Directory UNIX groups, but may result in slower performance if there are more Active Directory UNIX groups in the zone than the maximum you specify. Similarly, if you do not set a limit, you may experience performance problems if you have a large number of Active Directory groups. Decreasing the value of this parameter may provide better response time if there are more Active Directory UNIX groups in the zone than the maximum you specify, but further limits how much information is returned.
If this parameter is not defined in the configuration file, its default value is 1000 groups.
