It's defined in 2.0 as:
attributetype ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1
    NAME ( 'uid' 'userid' )
    DESC 'RFC1274: user identifier'
    EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
    SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
    SYNTAX{256} )

That is, a directoryString (UTF-8) of recommend length not greater
than 256.

No. There is no limit restriction (other than underlying
system/database limits which are huge).

Check the logs for details.
