Join Chaim Krause for an in-depth discussion in this video Manage users and groups, part of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Essential Training.
- [Instructor] At some point, you're gonna want to add users…to your server.…Let's look at how we do this.…I'm gonna pull up the man page for useradd,…and we can see that this creates a new user.…So I wanna come down here to the option which is -m,…which will create the user's home directory.…So with that, we should be able to add our user.…So let's quit out of here.…Let's clear our screen,…and I'm gonna do useradd,…and I'm gonna add…adam as a user.…
Now, if I look without -m,…we shouldn't have our home directory.…So let's ls…home,…and there's no adam.…So if we do useradd…- m brian,…and now we look at what's in home,…we see that we created a home directory for brian.…Users can be put into groups,…so you can have multiple users in a group.…So this way you can work with groups…instead of having to make changes for every single user,…and a way to do that is to addgroup…and a group name.…
And you can see I did it backwards…because it's actually groupadd.…And I'm leaving this mistake in here…because I'm showing you…that's it's very easy to get these wrong.…
