Originally:

The following 50 UID are from the legacy DCS range 28000 to 29500, that were not in use in the old DCS passwd file as of Oct 2004, and not in the current DICE "passwd" map either.

Please note that contrary to the title of this page, some of these UIDS are NOT used for admin users. Typically it is only COs that need to be AFS admin users, occasionally though there is a need for a user to be able to do a "vos release" and they will also need to be an admin user. If (and ONLY if ) you are intending to add an AFS system administrator then you must also add the user to the openafs.admin_users resource in the live/openafs-admin-users.h header file. This will guarantee that the admin user has the right privileges on all Informatics AFS file and database servers, the servers are totally managed using the LCFG openafs component, do not make any manual changes to the admin user list using bos. If you are unsure, do not do it, ask someone first!

To add the new user to AFS you want to do something like this:

$ asu
$ pts createuser -name fred.admin -id 99999

Obviously you need to insert the ID number you have just chosen from the list below. If the new user is a CO you will probably want to also do:

$ asu
$ pts adduser -user fred.admin -group system:administrators

Important If the table is full, don't just increment the last number, speak to Toby, Craig or Neil. The ones marked with * were actually allocated in the old DCS passwd map.

See my ~neilb/work/dice/accounts/dcsuidgen script

Also note that IS have reserved a range for us. We're not using them yet AFAIK (2014-04-24 update: Toby has provisionally stolen this range for automatic prometheus allocation - please speak to him before attempting to use any)
