I can't switch to user jenkins on an OpenVZ container. There is still a jenkins process running, which was started by this user.
# su jenkins; it does not switch to the jenkins user. There is no error message.
/etc/groups shows there is a jenkins group:
jenkins:x:498:. I tried
id -g jenkins and got this:
jenkins(uid=497). There is a
jenkins:x:497:498:Jenkins Continuous Build server:/var/lib/jenkins:/bin/false
Nothing happened to this container. I revisited it some time after it was stopped, I started it and found it in this situation.
So there is a jenkins user. Why can't I switch to it?
