ldbutil is used on the BIG-IP device in order to add/delete/modify user information in the LocalDB. When adding a new user to the Database, currently there is a limit of 127 characters for the user group field. In addition to that, restrictions apply to additional fields: user-name = 31 characters; DB instance = 63 characters; first name = 31 characters; last name = 31 characters; e-mail = 127 characters. password = 63 characters If ldbutil is directly invoked on the shell and if any of the above provided parameters exceed their respective limit, such parameters will be truncated when stored in the DB.


Parameters that exceed the length limit are accepted by the command but are truncated.
