    CPanel create accounts with wrong GroupID:UserID

    I have box for a while and asked datacenter to install CPanel on it.

    After installation I realized that newly created accounts have wrong GroupID:UserID.
    They can be found in the /etc/passwd, /etc/group

    On my other box Cpanel accounts started from 32000 ID.
    But on this box they started just right from 500.

    Also when new account created I have record in /etc/passwd with GroupID and UserID+1, i.e. for accounts ac1, ac2, ac3 I have records:
    Code:
    ac1:x:528:529::/home/ac1:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell
    ac2:x:529:530::/home/ac2:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell
    ac3:x:530:531::/home/ac3:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell
    That way I have all quota on my box mixed between different acounts and experienced much problems.

    So my question - how to make Cpanel start creating account from 32000 ?

    I tried manually update last records from /etc/passwd, /etc/group but it seems Cpanel does not take data from these files for creating new accounts.

    Please help me!..

    Try /scripts/fixeverything or /scripts/fixquota

    Not sure if there is a specific cmd to fix that problem but that should cover everything.

    Tried, of course tried
    With no success.

    It seems it is some kind server configuration problem during Cpanel installation that can not be fixed by their script.

    To start it from 32000, login to WHM

    Click on "Edit Setup"

    Under "Minimum UID" enter 32000

    Yes. That's correct. What's wrong with it being not starting from 32000 anyway?

    Generally problem is that created account has different UserID and GroupID.

    They should be equal.
    Otherwise we expected some quota and permission problem.
