userid puppet and freeradius


I have installed a SLES11SP2 with freeradius an now I found in /etc/passwd, that puppet use the same uid?
#cat /etc/passwd

puppet:x:103:106:Puppet daemon:/var/lib/puppet:/bin/false
radiusd:x:103:106:Radius daemon:/var/lib/radiusd:/bin/false

But the Scripts in the rpms from puppet and freeradius uses no numerical id’s but useradd:

PREIN freeradius:
/usr/sbin/groupadd -r radiusd 2> /dev/null || :
/usr/sbin/useradd -r -g radiusd -s /bin/false -c “Radius daemon” -d \
/var/lib/radiusd radiusd 2> /dev/null || :

PREIN puppet
getent group puppet >/dev/null || /usr/sbin/groupadd -o -r puppet
getent passwd puppet >/dev/null || /usr/sbin/useradd -r -g puppet -d /var/lib/puppet -s /bin/false -c “Puppet daemon” puppet

So I don’t know which packet was earlier installed, but with this scripts shouldn’t be exist a duplicate uid.

Does anyone can enlighten me, maybe I’m wrong?

Thanks Mike
