HDP 2.6.1 - "su: user ambari-qa does not exist"

HDP 2.6.1 - "su: user ambari-qa does not exist"

every couple of hours - Hive, Zookeeper and Spark fail with "connection refused" --> all thanks to

su: user ambari-qa does not exist

I have created the user (useradd) on all nodes manually now several times!

Every ambari-qa user apparently gets deleted regularly by HDP 2.6.1 on every node!

Does anyone know the cause and a possible solution for this?

Thank you sincerely!
