Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125548
postfix doesn't install postfix uid
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:02 EST
Description of problem:
I got a RHEL3 box installed with sendmail, and did up2date postfix;
and the postfix uid didn't exist. After manually running the commands
in the preinstall script as root, everything seems to work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I could do "rpm -e postfix; up2date postfix" in a loop and it never
worked. However after running the preinstall commands manually I can't
get it to fail again even if I userdel/groupdel all the post* uid/gid.
I keep getting these messages in /var/log/messages...

I can not reproduce this problem at all installing postfix after
removing the postfix user and the postfix and postdrop group.
Closing "NOT A BUG".
