Description Justin Sherrill 2006-08-31 10:33:45 EDT
Description of problem:

The NPusers rpm install script specifies a userid of 502 when creating the
NOCpulse user.  This will cause problems if the system already has a user
defined with uid of 502.  Since normal users get created with uids starting at
500, it isn't hard to see that this could become a problem.  If a UID must be
specified for the install script to work (for some reason), it would make sense
to use a much higher or lower uid.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 410.  (Untested on

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create user with UID of 502
2.  Install satellite 410

Actual results:
nocpulse user isn't created.  Monitoring doesn't work.

Expected results:
nocpulse user should be created.  Monitoring should work.
