from a putty terminal:

ssh tenlongusr@MyHost
tenlongusr@MyHost's password:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/TENLONGUSR: No such file or
directory
-bash-5.1$ ps -f
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD

unix: Some of the discussion boards noted that grep and stuff would
show the first 7 characters and the 8th character would be a plus sign
Let me try this on an aix lpar...
# oslevel
7.2.0.0
# mkuser rob456789
3004-694 Error adding "rob456789" : Name is too long.
Dropping the 9 worked.
