Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have several users on a fedora 6 server that have user and group id 0, but some apps are somehow resolving the users differently:

[first_admin@server ~]# whoami
first_admin
[first_admin@server ~]# whoami
second_admin

id -a gives similar random results, so my question is what could be happening here?

The users all have the same user ID? –  Oliver Salzburg Oct 4 '12 at 8:18
    
yes, and I have the same setup on another server which does resolve it to root always –  Maarten Oct 4 '12 at 8:36
