Description Fabian Deutsch 2015-09-04 04:07:15 EDT
Description of problem:
If rpc is in a tree on Atomic, then it won't start, because it seems that it is directly (not indirectly through libs) checking that the rpc user exists in /etc/passwd.
But as users are in /usr/lib/passwd on Atomic, rpcbind refuses to start:

Aug 31 08:46:38 atomic01.example.org systemd[1]: Starting RPC bind service...
Aug 31 08:46:38 atomic01.example.org systemd[1]: Started RPC bind service.
Aug 31 08:46:38 atomic01.example.org rpcbind[776]: cannot get uid of 'rpc': Success
Aug 31 08:46:38 atomic01.example.org systemd[1]: rpcbind.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
