    Cause:
     Sometimes the specified Ownership (User/Group) is not in the system. Or otherwise we have User/Group in Place but System can not map it Properly .

    Resolution:

    1. Check if the user present in system.
    getent passwd 1451843492
    or
    grep -i   1451843492 /etc/passwd

    2. If the user is present and is not Properly mapped, We'll need to find the files  which is having user/group id as following (1451843492 2116441323) and change them as required.

    a. List the files.
     find / -group 2116441323 -name "*" -exec ls -la {} \;
    find / -user 1451843492 -name "*" -exec ls -la {} \;
    b. Change to desired Ownership.
    find . -group 2116441323 -name "*" -exec chown root:wheel {} \;
