Allow service accounts to be longer than 8 characters
Our corporate service account naming standards across multiple platforms assumes that all operating systems support up to 20 characters. All of the OSes we use, do support longer names. We have had to make exceptions for service accounts that will be used for various InfoSphere components. The default account names that many applications provide in their installation scripts, examples, etc. are usually already close to 8 characters. When you have multiple instances of those applications (such as test, dev, QA, prod, etc. instances) you should likely use different service accounts for each instance. For example, we have multiple products that come with a DB2 component. DB2's default instance owner is db2inst1. However, since there are multiple products (not just InfoSphere) include a DB2 component, we do not want to use the same service account name across all of them, but would like that account name to be long enough to relate it to the specific application instance it supports. This logic applies to WebSphere, etc.
