OpenShift v3 UID values for Services

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We are running OpenShift V3.0 on some internal servers and we have discovered that the following local accounts were created during the OpenShift installation process:
dockerroot:x:271:271:Docker User:/var/lib/docker:/sbin/nologin
etcd:x:270:993:etcd user:/var/lib/etcd:/sbin/nologin
hacluster:x:189:189:cluster user:/home/hacluster:/sbin/nologin
  • Can the UID's for the associated UID / GID values be changed or are they static?
    • Can the values be updated to something else?
