Is it possible to create user id from the range 600 automatically?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • The user ids are changed in the range " 1000 to 1100" from the default one.

  • If a new user is created, it is taking user id from the range 1101 instead of 500(for example).

  • Does linux pick user id from the highest value?
