Yast doesn't show full list of configured groups and users

Installed nagios 3 on openSuse 12.2/KDE (64-bit). Went through the nagios.org ‘quickstart guide’ for openSuse, to confirm creation of required groups and users. Opening yast2 to User and Group Management, I don’t see user “nagios” or group “nagios.” Yet when I try to add this user and group Yast says there’s a conflict with existing names. Does that mean that the install created them? Why doesn’t Yast show all users and groups? How can I find all the configured users and groups? Are there config files for these?

but but but, you already told us
http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=470194 that that
guide has not been updated since 10, which died sometime between
2007-2009…so, why try to follow it??

why not try to find some more current info? like here maybe:

I have no idea what nagios is, but when I wanted to know for sure (not using any inetrpreting tool between me and the facts) which users are configured in my Ubix/Lunux system, I would look in /etc/passwd

And for groups in /etc/group.

Thanks to
hcvv for where to look for config’d users and groups
dd for pointing out that even the official web site of an application may not have the latest info–lesson learned.
