Adding users from a list or database?
What do you do if you have to add many users on a regular basis?
I would like to be able to add users from a list, to avoid the
interactive nature of adduser. Is there a tool that does something like
this? A couple of years ago I modified adduser to read entries from a
simple database (one line per entry, fields deliminated by colons) and
automagically create user accounts for them. Thats based on a really
old version of adduser though.
If there is no such tool available, I may modify adduser to be able to
run non-interactively, with all need info passed via command line
options or options file.
