Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 378091
Condor User/Group Request
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:19:26 EST
I need a user and group created for a new Condor package, a batch processing
system. The user and group name should be "condor" with a home directory of
/var/lib/condor. It is used to own all Condor daemons and files as well as run
user specified jobs. The Condor package is currently creating the account with:
getent group condor >/dev/null || groupadd -r condor
getent passwd condor >/dev/null || \
useradd -r -m -g condor -d %_var/lib/condor -s /sbin/nologin \
-c "Owner of Condor Daemons" condor
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. This request will
be reviewed for a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
Since we check for the existence of the account and create it if it's not there, no big deal. We'll just use the proper UID/GID as long as there's a guarantee that when it eventually gets into RHEL, the UID/GID will be 64:64.
Ok, then it shouldn't be a problem as i can guarantee that as soon as a new setup package lands in RHEL-5 it will contain that pair of uid/gid for condor. :)
Read ya, Phil
