Re: [Fedora-directory-users] admin command lines for Fedora DS

Hi Dan,
For adding users (with Posix Attributes), changing the userpassword, we are using these scripts :
_For creating users with Posix Attribute :_
create a file for example with the content :

dn: uid=user1, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
changetype: add
givenName: Sample User
sn: Sample
loginShell: /bin/bash
gidNumber: 500
uidNumber: 10059
mail: user1 example com
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: inetorgperson
objectClass: posixAccount
uid: user1
cn: Sample User
homeDirectory: /home/user1
userPassword: {CLEAR}pass123

Then issue the command '/opt/fedora-ds/shared/bin/ldapmodify -a -p 389 -h hostname -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w - -f add.ldif.

[-a refers the action add, -p refers port number (defaults to 389), After -w you can give the password there itself or if you don't want to give there give '-' there (the password will be asked), and -f refers the file which will be followed by the value (add.ldif)].

_Password Modifying script (modi.ldif) :_

dn: uid=genuser3,ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: userPassword
userPassword: NewRealPassword

./ldapmodify -a -p 389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w - -f modi.ldif

Hey Guys,

I Sys. Admin a small office of about 50 users and we have 6 linux
boxes and 2 openBSD boxes.  I am currently using NIS for management.
Am in the process of looking at moving from NIS to LDAP and after some
'googling' it seems that Fedora DS would cover all of my requirements.

I have installed the fedora DS and have manually (via the ds gui)
added a few users.  I would prefer however to get away from the GUI
and perform everything from the command line.  Thus far I have not
found any command line admin stuff.

Can you guys give me a hand with this stuff - or give me a pointer or
2.  I am looking how  to do the following:
* create groups
* add users
* add users with posix attributes,
* disable accounts.
* change passwords

you know the basic sort of stuff.  I have taken a look on amazon and
oreilly but cannot see any Fedora DS specific books.

Thanks in advance for your help.
