    1010For example, if you installed the SNMP Daemon package, a new user called 'snmpd' is added and the SNMP server is configured to use this userid to work correctly, but when a custom image is created and then used on a new node, the 'snmpd' user id and group is missing, which will cause the SNMP server to fail to run. As a possible workaround you can  save off these newly added ids and groups and add a startup script in rc.local which would add them back in when the image is used later.  If you need to save files in your image, you can create a directory on the / directory and save it inside that folder.

    12 In addition to creating a  / directory to save any files that may not be otherwise preserved, you can also choose to run an install script that puts this information back in place when the custom image is used again. See the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/HowTo/WriteInstallScript How to create an install script] page for more details.
