UID or GID conflicts

Management Console for Unix does not automatically pick up changes to the host made externally to the console unless you configure the host for auto-profiling.

For example, when you install Privilege Manager software on a remote host, it creates a new user and group named pmclient, assigning a UID and GID accordingly. If you do not profile the host after installing the Privilege Manager packages, the mangement console will not recognize the new user name and group name. If you attempt to configure that host for auto-profiling or automatic QAS status updates without profiling, you might encounter a UID conflict, such as this:

Or, if you attempt to add a new local group to that host without profiling, you might encounter a GID error like this:

If you encounter a UID or GID conflict, profile the host and try the action again before you troubleshoot the problem further.

NoteS:

  • As a best practice, configure newly added hosts for auto-profiling before you perform any other actions so that the mangement console dynamically updates user and group information. See Automatically profiling hosts for details.
  • If Authentication Services is installed you may also get these errors because of UID/GID conflicts with Active Directory accounts. In this case, because the mangement console does not check for Active Directory conflicts, you will have to manually create the user with a different ID.

System maintenance

It is important to safeguard your data. One Identity recommends that you maintain copies of the most important files so you're always prepared for the worst.

This appendix provides general information and guidelines for maintaining or backing up your data.

Backup procedure

It is necessary to perform a backup when the service is not running. You can use normal backup methods, such as archiving the files in a compressed bundle.

To backup the Management Console for Unix program files

  1. Shutdown the service.
  2. Copy the application data directory to a backup location.

    By default, the application data directory is:

    • On Windows:
      %SystemDrive%:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix
    • On Unix/Linux:
      /var/opt/quest/mcu
  3. Restart the service.

    Note: For more information on stopping and restarting the service, see Start/stop/restart Management Console for Unix service.

Restore procedure

It is necessary to restore your files when the service is not running.

To restore the Management Console for Unix program files

  1. Shutdown the service.
  2. Replace the application data directory files with the ones you previously backed up.

    By default, the application data directory is:

    • On Windows:
      %SystemDrive%:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix
    • On Unix/Linux:
      /var/opt/quest/mcu
  3. Once you have replaced the files, restart the service.

    Note: For more information on stopping and restarting the service, see Start/stop/restart Management Console for Unix service.
