This configuration parameter applies to the AIX Loadable Authentication Module (LAM) and specifies the maximum number of Active Directory users that the lsuser ALL command will return. This value also limit the results returned by the getpwent() and nextuser() functions.
The parameter value must be an integer. The default value for this parameter is 1000 users. If you specify 0 or a negative value (for example, -1), there is no limit on the number of users 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 users, but may result in slower performance if there are more Active Directory UNIX users 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 users. Decreasing the value of this parameter may provide better response time if there are more Active Directory UNIX users 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 users.
