RE: adding user starting with caps letter fails on linux



I had the same issue and Fedora Core 1.  This is a bug in RedHat.  This is
how I resolved it.  Add the user using all lower-case letters first.  Then
edit the user and group names to how you want them in the /etc/passwd,
/etc/group, and /etc/shadow files.

Subject: adding user starting with caps letter fails on linux

I tried to add user with name 'NewUser' and got
following message -

   useradd: invalid user name 'NewUser'

Can someone help me to know the reason behind it?

Thanx
raja
