Description Michael Quick 2005-08-29 10:52:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Description of problem:
Seemingly a very minor issue, when trying to create the group "nappo" with "/usr/sbin/groupadd", it states it already exists when it obviously does not. RHEL3 tested on x86_64 and i686. 



SUCCESS:
shadow-utils-4.0.3-20.05
shadow-utils-4.0.3-22.02


FAILS:
shadow-utils-4.0.3-23.08 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
shadow-utils-4.0.3-23.08

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/sbin/groupadd nappo

  

Actual Results:  [root@redcat root]# groupadd nappo
groupadd: group nappo exists
[root@redcat root]# cat /etc/group | grep nappo
[root@redcat root]#


Expected Results:  should create the group "nappo" and be seen in /etc/group.

Fixing component and reassigning.
Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2005-09-06 03:36:56 EDT
I can't reproduce it.
