Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
id: testa: no such user
useradd: cannot lock /etc/passwd; try again later.
we can add the user successfully.
I've test some rhel7 hosts, they all successful, but my cifs test cases always failed on this step.
on rhel6, never happened this.
Do you have any reason to suspect this is a bug in Beaker rather than in the distro?
Can you investigate further to see why useradd things /etc/passwd is locked?
Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.
This bugs is closed as it is either not in the current Beaker scope or we could not find sufficient data in the bug report for consideration.
Please feel free to reopen the bug with additional information and/or business cases behind it.
