Rebooted customer's oes linux sp2 server today and noticed services that
failed to load (apache2, novell-tomcat4, novell-xsrvd and
novell-xregd). Upon further investigation I found the above ids as well
as the www group have been deleted.

I re-created wwwrun and www with useradd groupadd respectively to add
the user group back to the Linux side.

My questions are can I simply add the other novl* users to eDir? Do I
need to also add the www group to eDir in order to add the three novl*
users (to the www group)?

The LUM objects still exist in eDir and LUM is functional as I am able
to ssh to the server using the admin eDir credentials.
