Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: [opensuse-buildservice] register static UID/GID on openSUSE?

Context: the ceph project wants to reserve a UID/GID - being a
distributed storage cluster, it's best if the UID/GIDs remain static
across the whole cluster, and the most straightforward way to do this is
to hardcode a UID/GID in a useradd/groupadd invocation in the rpm %pre
script.

I'm not sure if that is supported by openSUSE, but there is also
systemd-sysusers (see man sysusers.d or
http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/stateless.html ) to create system
users/groups.

systemd-sysusers is just an improved version of (%pre+useradd).
It still cannot guarantee equal UIDs across all (or even just a handful
of) systems.
