Hello,

I just installed two brand new boxes with SLES 10 SP1 and OES 2. Installs
went just fine. NSS is working wonderfully.

However, for both boxes, I do not have a wwwrun user or wwwgroup in eDir.
The user exists in /etc/passwd

According to the documentation:

-----------------------------------------
H.1 System Users Created on Linux

Table H-1 System Linux Users

Username Entry in /etc/passwd
Associated Service
iprint iprint:x:UID:GID::/var/opt/novell/iprint:/shell
iPrint daemons
novell_nobody novell_nobody:x:UID:GID:Novell System User:/opt/novell:/shell
CIMOM
novlxregd1 novlxregd:x:81:81:Novell XRegD System
User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xregd:/shell XTier registry daemon
novlxsrvd1 novlxsrvd:x:82:81:Novell XSrvD System
User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xsrvd:/shell XTier service
wwwrun1 wwwrun:x:30:8:WWW daemon apache:/var/lib/wwwrun:/shell
Apache

1 When Novell Storage Services™ (NSS) is installed on the Linux server,
these users are removed from the local system and created as LUM-enabled
users in eDirectory. This is required because these users must have access
to NSS data, and all NSS access is controlled through eDirectory.
-----------------------------------------

When NSS was installed, should it not have deleted the wwwrun user from
/etc/passwd and LUM enabled that user?

I tried running the NSS install again through YaST but it did do that.

What step did I miss on the install? What do I need to run to create the
wwwrun user and www group in eDir?

Thanks!

Matt
