Description Striker Leggette 2017-06-15 10:02:08 EDT
[+] Description of problem:
 - Currently, IPA does not disallow changing a user's UID or GID to the same number of another user.  However, it would be beneficial to have a dialog message pop up when doing this so that the administrator knows the UID number is in use.
