When creating a new compute engine using the Debian 9.0 image there is a default user created with my full email address. This user has no primary group associated with it.
How do I setup this user so that it has a valid primary group on creation?
If I type 'id' on my user I get the following;
uid=53928310(foo_gmail_com) gid=53928310 groups=53928310
The GID 53928310 doesn't exist in the /etc/group file I have to
sudo addgroup --gid 53928310 foo_gmail_com
Also the user doesn't exist in the /etc/passwd file, should it?
