Description James Laska 2009-04-30 11:39:35 EDT
Description of problem:

  * While testing https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/wiki/Fedora_11_Test_Day/NSS_Local_Native, repeat the useradd command after it successfully adds the user the first time.

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

 * sssd-0.3.3-3.fc11

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot SSSD Test Day live image
2. As root, type:

 # /usr/sbin/sss_useradd nativelocaluser

3. As root, again type:

 # /usr/sbin/sss_useradd nativelocaluser
Actual results:

[/usr/sbin/sss_useradd] [main] (0): Operation failed (17)[File exists]
server_sort:Unable to register control with rootdse!
asq: Unable to register control with rootdse!
[/usr/sbin/sss_useradd] [main] (0): Operation failed (17)[File exists]

Expected results:

Not sure if this is a fair expectation, but I would expect the same output that the standard useradd command gives.  For example:

 # /usr/sbin/sss_useradd nativelocaluser
 sss_useradd: user nativelocaluser exists
