You may be considering a "hash" or "hashing" your Oracle Business Intelligence 11g|12c (OBIEE) Catalog directories.
HashUserHomeDirectories: Specifies the hashing of directories. If you have more than 4000 catalog users or if you intend to have more than 4000 catalog users in the future, then you must turn on the hashing of users' home directories to address a file system limitation. To do so, set the HashUserHomeDirectories element to 2 from its default value of 0. When this element is turned on, for example, the default name for user Steve's home directory would become /users/st/steve.
Keep the following points in mind:
The HashUserHomeDirectories element must be set immediately after installing Oracle BI EE to be effective.
Since you may already have an existing installation and catalog place when you decide that you may need to hash the catalog directories, this document describes how to hash or alter the hash of existing catalog directories.
