WARNING: Privilege separation user sshd does not exist PDF

Sometimes when you play with sshd for some reasons your could have this error: "Privilege separation user sshd does not exist" when trying to start SSHD.

In this situation you should create a sshd user and group:

- add a "sshd" group with GID 22
- add a "sshd" user with UID 22, with shell "nologin" and home dir /var/empty.
