Description Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-05 09:56:15 UTC
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 <ovasik@redhat.com> 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.
