RE: [K12OSN] HELP!! creating bulk users



AMEN THAT!!! I wish there were good things like that for Novell! Funny
the 'free' stuff has better, easier to use, faster, smoother, tools than
the expensive, costly (time and money), slow, unhandy, rediculous paid
for stuff!

(I'd go back to the easy, good, efficient, fast, smooth, solid 'free'
stuff in a SECOND if I could!)

JMHO - YMMV

('free' refers to free as in beer; linux) 'paid for' means Novelln this
case. . .

Randy,
 
Have you used Webmin?  I use Webmin and the bulk user add utility.  You
just import a CSV file into the script and it adds each user, creates
home directory, etc.

Subject: [K12OSN] HELP!! creating bulk users

I have a server with ubuntu 6.06 on it. I ran the smbldap-installer
script and have it set up as my pdc. I created over 800 users useing
the
bulk add scripts that came with the installer. I noticed however that
it
did not create any home directory for these users. If I manually create
a
single user everything is fine home directory is created. I need to
have
home directories for these users. I need this fixed fast as school
starts
next week. Everything worked fine last year when I had it all running
on
fedora. This summer I switched it all over to ubuntu and have had
nothing
but headaches. I need help fast. Thanks for any input.
