lsfadmin userid in Spectrum LSF for Enterpise

  • 1.  lsfadmin userid in Spectrum LSF for Enterpise

    Posted Thu September 29, 2022 09:06 AM

    We've installed Spectrum LSF Fix Pack 13 in a cluster with three masters. Userid lsfadmin did not exist beforehand, so it was created during the install. According to https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/slsfe/10.2.0?topic=updating-installation-requirements ,
    If the lsfadmin user does not exist, the lsfadmin user account is created automatically as the default cluster administrator account. It is created as a system account that does not expire with the default UID of 495.


    However, the lsfadmin user was created with a UID and GID of 1000321495.  File /opt/ibm/lsf_installer/playbook/roles/lsf-common/tasks/check_lsfadmin.yml has 1000321495  hardcoded for both UID and GID. But all of the conf files under /opt/ibm/lsfsuite/lsf/conf and the log files under /opt/ibm/lsflogs have a UID of 495, for which there is no corresponding user name. Is this a bug or was there a reason for doing this?

    The document was not up to latest change.


    We have change the UID of lsfadmin to larger number to avoid duplication since
