#669 Request to allocate (uid, gid) = (389, 389) for the 389 Directory Server user "dirsrv"
Closed: Fixed None Opened 2 years ago by nhosoi.

The Directory Server (389-ds-base) has been creating the user "dirsrv" in the rpm installation since FC24/rhel-7.3. The uid and gid values are important because of the nature of the Directory Server. For instance, the Directory Server may run back-up to the NFS mounted filesystem and the back-up may be shared among the other replica servers. That type of scenario is quite common in the ops work. Thus, having a fixed uid, gid pair is crucial for us.

We found this Soft static allocation page, which solves our potential problem.

Could you please allocate (uid, gid) = (389, 389) for the Directory Server?


We discussed this at this weeks meeting (http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-1/2017-02-09/fpc.2017-02-09-17.01.txt):

  • 669 Request (uid, gid) = 389 for the 386 Directory Server

  • ACTION: Request (uid, gid) = 389 for the 386 Directory Server (+1:6,
    0:0, -1:0) (geppetto, 17:14:27)
