change UID for accounts in Linux (Redhat)
Posted on 2006-11-15
Due to some requirements, I need to change some users account UID.
I need to know what are the necessary/relevant changes that need to be made once the UIDs are changed. And also how do they related to processes and file permissions and to the applications & DBs running on the systems.
Bottomline is I do not want to change something which I am not aware of the consequences.
