Description Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-05 13:33:57 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #515667 +++

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.

Fixed by:

* Wed Aug 05 2009 Peter Vrabec <pvrabec@redhat.com> 2:
- increase threshold for uid/gid reservations to 200 (#515667)
