- Subject: Suggestion to make cygserver's unknown uid/gid messages more informative
Could you please consider adding a bit more information to these two
cygserver messages to help identify the offending user or group,
for which they get issued:
cygserver: WARNING: User not found in /etc/passwd! Using uid -1!
cygserver: WARNING: Group not found in /etc/group! Using gid -1!
Our app works very closely with the server making a huge amount of
requests, so if/when the things get out of control, we get tons of
these messages, yet none of them are very useful.
