Why does file's inode change?



Hi,

perhaps dump question:

I'm using ids system and doing file monitoring.
If any file changed, i see it.
Recently i saw inode change of /etc/shadow.
One user was added.

So what might be reason for inode change of any file? Does inode size grow by-and-by? I think not. Or might only reasonable cause be that this file was deleted and recreated again?

regards
