To create Bloominglabs accounts:

  • ssh to bloominglabs.org (ask dosman about the specifics)
  • /usr/local/bin/ldapadduser {username} {group} "{gecos}"
    • group can either be the group name or the gid
    • make sure to put gecos info in quotes if there is a space - like between their first and last name
    • you can add a uid at the end of the command if you want to set a particular uid
    • running ldapadduser without any parameters will give you usage info
  • Examples:
    • /usr/local/bin/ldapadduser pvenkman users "Dr. Peter Venkman"
      • This will create the pvenkman account and assign it the next uid and the gid of the users group
    • /usr/local/bin/ldapadduser rstanz 100 "Dr. Raymond Stanz" 2408
      • This will create the rstanz account and assign it the uid 2408 and the gid 100
    • /usr/local/bin/ldapadduser
      • returns: Usage : ./ldapadduser <username> <groupname | gid> "<gecos>" [uid]
  • change the user's password: /usr/local/bin/ldapchangepasswd {username}
