Re: Static system level uid/gid's reservations in Fedora/RHEL - how to handle situation?

increase the threshold of system level id's (to 200? 300?)

I guess I've been blissfully ignorant and always assumed that id's under 500 were reserved for system use since Redhat systems have always created the first user uid as 500. Other admins I've worked with have been similarly misinformed, so you might get lucky here.

I wonder if a check for uid's between 100 and 500 could be added to smolt.
