Re: [K12OSN] HELP!! creating bulk users



Unfortunately, I do not understand your commands. I also have to have a
way to do this that will work as this is a production server. I would just
blow this away and start over but the users passwords have already been
put into there schedule. I am also unsure if I create the users again
using the bulk user script (from matt oquists smbldap-installer) that it
will still not create the home directories. Is there something wrong with
this script? I need help!
