Subject: [IBMiOSS] SSH User

I've started getting everything setup to use the open source tools on our i.
I'm working through enabling SSH right now.

There seems to be an 8 character limit on usernames and my username
(qholmberg) is 9. How far does this limitation go? I setup a new
user to start SSHD and it is up and running. I can connect with that
user but not with qholmberg. Is it because it is 9 characters or is
there a different direction I should be investigating?
