User Name Limitation?


#1

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but when I go to add a user named “info” to my domain I’m getting an error saying that a user with that name already exists… but the user “info” does not show in the list of users. Is there a limitation on names for users?

Thanks,

Yes. With DH, there is a cluster of machines for a group of customers. Usernames for shell/ftp are spread across this cluster of machines. Thus, if one customer thinks of using “info” first for a shell/ftp username, no one else on the cluster can use “info” for an shell/ftp username after that.

If you simply need mail sent to “info@yourdomain”, then sent up a mailbox and have the address set to “info@yourdomain”, or you can setup an ftp/shell user and then when you add the address “info@yourdomain” specify that mail should be delivered to the ftp/shell user.
