Re: how to check uniqueness of uidNumber ?

I am administering a system similar to yours. We built a Postgres
database just to maintain a list of available uidNumbers, and it has
worked quite well thus far. Every time we create a new user, we select a
uidNumber for the Postgres DB and remove it from the list.


what if we use a timestamp, pid, ..etc any combination of numbers we r sure that they r unique? and also take into consideration the multiuser env.
