User ID (-UID)

Use the User ID adapter command (-UID) to set the user ID of the member to be archived or extracted.

-UID uid_num
Option
Description
uid_num
Specify a user ID to be archived or extracted.

When adding a member and -UID is not specified, the user ID is set to 0, the root, unless -FILE is specified, in which case the member inherits the UID of the file.

When extracting a member and -UID is not specified, but -FILE is specified, the user ID of the file to which the member is extracted is set to the same UID as the extracted member.

The User ID adapter command (-UID) is only supported in environments that support IDs.
