Creation of user and group in solaris10

Creation of user and group in solaris10

From command mode :-

#groupadd -g gid groupname - to create a new group.
eg:- groupadd -g 200 newgroup

#more /etc/groups
to check if the group is created

#useradd -u -g -d /export/home/userhomedirectory -m -s /bin/sh username

eg:- useradd -u 200 -g 200 -d /export/home/naveen -m -s /bin/sh naveen.

#passwd naveen
enter passwd

#more /etc/passwd
#more /etc/shadow
-This is used to check the user and passwd entries are available.


Type SMC at command mode

#smc - solaris management console

2)Double click user tab

3)Click on the create user option and enter the information

4)Enter user id .

5)Enter Password.

6)Enter group.

7)Enter Home Directory.

8)Enter default Mail server path.

9)Click finish and user is created same way u can also create group.
For testing #su - naveen - if you are trying to login from root it will not ask for passwd so use #telnet localhost and enter username and passwd.

Thanks & Regards
