...and of course within a few minutes of sending that I've found that
it appears xCAT does not create the micuser in the passwd file it
deploys to the Phi's.

This means the /bin/coi_daemon on the Phi cards cannot start as the
init script runs it with the "--coiuser=micuser" argument so it fails
with:

[root at barcoo062-mic0 /root]# /etc/init.d/coi start
 Starting COI server... [ OK ]
[root at barcoo062-mic0 /root]# Can't drop priviledges to requested user
'micuser'

So xCAT folks, any ideas why that user would be missing?

All the best,
Chris
