Should be fixed 2aba8f77a2c0de6690f973e331f130000d35c451

If you've already upgraded and you are missing the user, run:

/usr/sbin/pw groupadd -n _relayd -g 913
/usr/sbin/pw useradd -n _relayd -c "Relay Daemon" -d /var/empty -s /usr/sbin/nologin -u 913 -g 913

#2 Updated by Roy Walker over 8 years ago

Yes adding the user does get the relayd service running. I wanted to open the bug so that the upgrade procsess can be corrected to properly add the user.

#3 Updated by Jim Pingle over 8 years ago

Yes, new upgrades that happen on snapshots that include the commit I referenced will work fine. I changed the upgrade code to run those commands when upgrading the server load balancing code.

If you want to try it out, wait for a snapshot from tomorrow (or very late today) and try to upgrade again from 1.2.3 to 2.0.

Feedback: Fixed.
Recommendation: Close ticket.

Findings:
Upgrade from 1.2.3 to RC1 build "Sat Feb 26 16:00:14 EST 2011". User was created on simple upgrade.

From /etc/pass line 20 after upgrade

_relayd:*:913:913:Relay Daemon:/var/empty:/usr/sbin/nologin

Please let me know if any more information is needed.
