[K12OSN] Adding Users

    Have you considered setting up NIS or LDAP for the two machines? 
With NIS, you can set one up as the master and the other as the slave. 
You can make changes on the master and the slave would pick up those
changes whenever the maps are pushed out.  You could make additional
maps in addition to those that are default (passwd, shadow, hosts,
etc.)  Haven't played with LDAP, but the idea is the same.  I hope to do
it this summer.  Time permitting....

posted this a few days ago with no response - can
anyone help me.

I have one machine with k12OS running as samba server
another machine running K12LTSP as terminal server. 

I intend to add all users to the samba server and then
copy passwd, group and shadow files over to terminal
server on a daily/twice daily cron job.

I too hope to use some kind of text file containing
first name and last name and SIN# which will extract a
username  and password from this data and add these
