Creating users is an essential part of Linux systems administration. We will practice creating users and groups, and assigning users to group accounts. To complete this lab, we must create a group account and two user accounts, assigning the new users to the new group.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create the appusers group
- Create the appuser1 user account with a UID of 2001. The gecos field should contain, “Admin1 Account for ABC Application.”
useradd -u 2001 -c “Admin1 Account for ABC Application” -g appusers appuser1
- Create the appuser2 user account with a UID of 2002. The gecos field should contain, “Admin2 Account for ABC Application.”
useradd -u 2002 -c “Admin2 Account for ABC Application” -g appusers appuser2
