Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Misleading description of min_id option in man sssd.conf. It wrongly said than min_id may be 0. Consequence: If min_id = 0 SSSD doesn't allow uid/gid to be 0 anyway. Fix: Description of min_id was changed, so it says that minimum value is 1. Result: Description of min_id now corresponds with SSSD behaviour.

Description Najmuddin Chirammal 2013-06-27 08:50:37 EDT
Description of problem: 

SSSD filters out ldap user/group entries if its uid/gid is zero, per man page, we can  set min_id to zero.

Request to update man pages to reflect the current behavior. (either change min_id minimum value to 1 or mention id=0 is ignored by sssd).
