Apache fails to start with the following error in the log:

httpd: bad user name ...
However the id command issued at a teminal window returns correct values for the given user. The host is not using local user database.

I wonder how I can debug this. Running httpd -X ... does not help, the log file has no details.

The OS is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)
