Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 515667
login.defs/SYS_UID_MIN should be 200
Last modified: 2009-08-12 16:53:01 EDT
Since setup-2.8.7, the 100-200 range is used for uidgid reservations and 107 is reserved for qemu. See:
* Tue Jul 21 2009 Ondrej Vasik <firstname.lastname@example.org> 2.8.7-1
- increase threshold for uidgid reservations to 200
- reserve uidgid pair 107:107 for qemu (libvirt,#511957)
- reflect threshold in profile and bashrc, do inform about
uidgid file existence there
However, 'useradd -r' and 'groupadd -r' still allocate out of the 100-500 range.
We have a report of openvpn using gid 107 on a tester's system.
