smbldap-useradd [-abinwPW] [-c comment] [-d home_dir] [-g initial_group] [-m [-k skeleton_dir]] [-o user_ou] [-s shell] [-t time] [-u uid] [-A canchange] [-B mustchange] [-C smbhome] [-D homedrive] [-E scriptpath] [-F profilepath] [-G group[,...]] [-H acctflags] [-M mailaddr[,...]] [-N givenname] [-O mailaddr[,...]] [-S surname] [-T mailaddr[,...]] [-X encoding] [-Z name=value[,...]] login


Creating New Users The smbldap-useradd command creates a new user account using the values specified on the command line and the default values from the system and from the configuration files (in the /etc/smbldap-tools directory).

Without any option, the account created will be a Unix (Posix) account. The following options may be used to add information:

-a The user will have a Samba account (and Unix).

-A Can change password? 0 if no, 1 if yes.

-b The user is an AIX account.

-B Must change password? 0 if no, 1 if yes.

-c "comment" The new user's comment field (gecos). This option is for gecos only! To set as user's full name use the -N and -S options.

-C sambaHomePath SMB home share, like '\\\\PDC-SRV\\homes'.

-d home_dir The new user will be created using home_dir for the user's login directory. The default is to append the login name to userHomePrefix (defined in the configuration file) and use that as the login directory name.

-D sambaHomeDrive Letter associated with home share, like 'H:'.

-E sambaLogonScript Relative to the [netlogon] share (DOS script to execute on login, like 'foo.bat'.

-F sambaProfilePath Profile directory, like '\\\\PDC-SRV\\profiles\\foo'.

-g initial_group The group name or number of the user's initial login group. The group name must exist. A group number must refer to an already existing group. The default group number is defined in the configuration file (defaultUserGid="513").

-G group,[...] A list of supplementary groups that the user is also a member of. Each group is separated from the next by a comma, with no intervening whitespace. The groups are subject to the same restrictions as the group given with the -g option. The default is for the user to belong only to the initial group.

-H sambaAcctFlags Spaces and trailing bracket are ignored (samba account control bits like '[NDHTUMWSLKI]').

-i Creates an interdomain trust account (machine Workstation). A password will be asked for the trust account.

-k skeletonDir When creating the user's home directory, copy files and directories from skeletonDir rather than /etc/skel. The -k option is only valid in conjunction with the -m option. The default is not to create the directory and not to copy any files.

-m The user's home directory will be created if it does not exist. The files contained in skeletonDir will be copied to the home directory if the -k option is used, otherwise the files contained in /etc/skel will be used instead. Any directories contained in skeletonDir or /etc/skel will be created in the user's home directory as well.

-M mail E-mail addresses (multiple addresses are separated by commas).

--non-unique Allow the creation of a user account with a duplicate (non-unique) UID.

-n Do not print banner message.

-N givenname Family name. Defaults to username.

-o node The user's account will be created in the specified organizational unit. It is relative to the user suffix dn ($usersdn) defined in the configuration file. Ex: 'ou=admin,ou=all'

-O localMailAddress localMailAddresses (multiple addresses are separated by commas).

-P Ends by invoking smbldap-passwd.

-p Read password from STDIN without verification.

-s shell The name of the user's login shell. The default is to leave this field blank, which causes the system to select the default login shell.

-S surname Defaults to username.

-t time Wait <time> seconds before exiting script when adding computer's account. This is useful when Master/PDC and Slaves/BDCs are connected through the Internet (replication is not real time).

-T mailToAddress Forward address (multiple addresses are separated by commas).

-u uid The numerical value of the user's ID. This value must be unique, unless the --non-unique option is used. The value must be non-negative. The default is to use the smallest ID value greater than 1000 and greater than every other user.

-w/-W Creates an account for a Samba machine (Workstation), so that it can join a sambaDomainName. Normally -w is used for adding machines through Samba but -W can be used for manual addition of samba attributes.

-X encoding Specify input encoding for givenname and surname (default UTF-8).

-Z name=value Specify custom LDAP attributes, using comma-separated name=value pairs.
