The specified user group 'admin' does not exist. When trying to add new user to a fresh installation

Jump to solution

The is a fresh installation of Data Protector 10.40 on RHEL 7 (fully updated). When trying to add a user with any of the predefined DP groups (admin, user, or operator), I get the message: The specified user group 'admin' does not exist.

Here I demonstrate the problem using the example copy/pasted from the CLI reference guide:

[root@adearc01 ~]# /opt/omni/bin/omnicc -ver
Micro Focus Data Protector A.10.40: OMNICC, internal build 118, built on Tue 21 May 2019 09:50:46 BST
[root@adearc01 ~]# cat /etc/opt/omni/server/users/ClassSpec
CLASS admin
PERMISSION -1
DESCRIPTION "Administrator Class"

CLASS operator
PERMISSION 550911
DESCRIPTION "Operator"

CLASS user
PERMISSION 32
DESCRIPTION "Simple User Class"

[root@adearc01 ~]# for group in admin operator user ; do
> omniusers -add -type U -name root -usergroup $group -group \* -client client.company.com
> done

The specified user group 'admin' does not exist.

The specified user group 'operator' does not exist.

The specified user group 'user' does not exist.

I have tried reinstalling the whole of DP, but that has made no difference.

Hello @dchallen

This error means that users and groups have not been migrated to Keycloak: 

The specified user group 'admin' does not exist.

I am sure that if you run omniusers -list you will receive nothing, just skip the line. 

So you need to run the migration manually:

/opt/omni/bin/perl /opt/omni/sbin/userMigrate.pl


After that, you will be able to run the omniusers -add command.
