Hi, So this is a rule that is hard coded into IPA?
I agree on the principle unfortunately I have several accounts that do things like apache, run applications on the host.... regards Steven Jones Technical Specialist - Linux RHCE Victoria University, Wellington, NZ 0064 4 463 6272 ________________________________________ From: Stephen Gallagher [sgall...@redhat.com] Sent: Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:42 p.m. To: Steven Jones Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] IPA and UIDS <500 On Thu, 2012-07-19 at 00:02 +0000, Steven Jones wrote: > Hi, > > Is there a rule or something that makes users with a UID of less than > 500 not work? Yes, on Red Hat and older Fedora systems, UIDs below 500 are reserved for system services such as the apache user. On newer Fedora systems (and most other distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu), the reserved range has been increased to 1000. So it's never safe to use an ID below those values. (And as a general rule, it's best to keep your network IDs above 10,000 to avoid conflicts with local user accounts as well). _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
