Effect of Changing UID & GID in unix
I have Solaris at my workplace.
Currently Esm was configured.It's listing conflicting configurations against policy standards.
Few of them are like usrid's/guid's of users are below 100 so I am planning to change it above 100.
For eg. I have ops id for an operations team.If I change uid and group id of this particular user/group, do I have to just find files of that particular users/groups ownership and change it accordingly.Or else something elese I have to do.
Will it affect any running applications owned by user/group whose ID I am going to change.
Also there are few ids owned by applications whose secondary gid is 0, how do I proceed with those, as its very risky to change in prod environment.
