preserve system groups in backup config

Submitted by -
Status: Won't Implement


In EdgeOS (current installed version 1.4.1) for openvpn configuration we had to add a system group nobody. On every EdgeOS firmware update we have to recreate this group manually as group settings are not preserved in the regular EdgeOS backup config. Further more after a regular firmware upgrade openvpn settings are not re-applied as they depend to the existence of the group nobody. Thus after a regular firmware update, first the group nobody has to re-added manually on the shell and then the backup config has to reapplied in order the openvpn settings are restored correctly.

So it would be very helpful, if group settings are also included in the backup config and re-applied to the updated system before the config settings are applied. Would be nice if this could be implemented into the next release of EdgeOS.

regards, relume

should use "nogroup" as the group in that case, not "nobody".
