Description German Pulido 2015-12-14 18:14:31 EST
Description of problem:
I am using Satellite 5.7, created several configuration channels, they work fine. However a particular channel has to create files and the user owner of those files has a dot in the username/group name. Satellite is not allowing me to create the file, it throws this error:

User must be a valid Linux user name or user id, of 32 characters or less.
Group must be a valid Linux group name or group id, of 32 characters or less.

However the user is completely valid, it already exists in several RHEL5/6/7 systems and it works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a configuration channel
2. Try to add a file to it
3. Set the owner user/group of the file to something like name.lastname

Actual results:
The error is thrown:

User must be a valid Linux user name or user id, of 32 characters or less.
Group must be a valid Linux group name or group id, of 32 characters or less.


Expected results:
The file is created in the configuration channel and it works fine when deployed
