NAME
       luseradd - Add an user

SYNOPSIS
       luseradd [OPTION]... user

DESCRIPTION
       Adds an user with name user.

OPTIONS
       -c, --gecos=gecos
	      Set  the	GECOS  field  to  gecos.   The GECOS field is traditionally used to store
	      user's real name and other information.

       -d, --directory=directory
	      Set user's home directory to directory.  If this option is not present,  a  default
	      specified by libuser configuration is used.

       -g, --gid=group
	      Set  user's  primary group to group.  group can either be a group ID of an existing
	      group, or a group name; if group is a group name and the group does not  exist,  it
	      is created.  If the --gid option is not specified, the default group name is user.

       -i, --interactive
	      Ask all questions when connecting to the user database, even if default answers are
	      set up in libuser configuration.

       -k, --skeleton=directory
	      Populate the newly created user's home directory with a copy of directory.  If this
	      option  is  not present, a default directory specified by libuser configuration, or
	      /etc/skel if libuser configuration does not specify a default, is used.

       -M, --nocreatehome
	      Don't create a home directory and a mail spool for the newly created user.

       -n, --nocreategroup
	      If a group is not specified using -g, use group name "users" instead of user.  Note
	      that despite the name of the option, the group will still be created if it does not
	      exist.

       -P, --plainpassword=password
	      Set user's password to password.	Note that the password can be viewed  while  run-
	      ning luseradd using tools such as ps(1).

       -p, --password=encrypted
	      Set  user's  password to the password represented by the hash encrypted.	Note that
	      the hash can be viewed while running luseradd using tools such as ps(1).

       -r, --reserved
	      The user is a system user.  Users that are not marked as system user  usually  have
	      automatically  selected  user IDs above a certain value (configured as LU_UIDNUMBER
	      in libuser.conf(5)).  This information is also  passed  to  the  libuser	backends.
	      This option implies the -M option.

       -s, --shell=shell
	      Set  user's  login shell to shell.  If this option is not present, a default speci-
	      fied by libuser configuration is used.

       -u, --uid=uid
	      Use user ID uid for the newly created user.  An user ID is  selected  automatically
	      if this option is not present.

       --commonname=name
	      Use  common name name for the newly created user.  This attribute is only supported
	      in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may	have  further  limitations  (e.g.
	      LDAP schema rules).

       --givenname=name
	      Use  given  name name for the newly created user.  This attribute is only supported
	      in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may	have  further  limitations  (e.g.
	      LDAP schema rules).

       --homephone=phone
	      Use home telephone number phone for the newly created user.  This attribute is only
	      supported in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may have further limitations
	      (e.g. LDAP schema rules).

       --roomnumber=room
	      Use  room number room for the newly created user.  This attribute is only supported
	      in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may	have  further  limitations  (e.g.
	      LDAP schema rules).

       --surname=name
	      Use  surname  name for the newly created user.  This attribute is only supported in
	      some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may have further limitations  (e.g.  LDAP
	      schema rules).

       --telephonenumber=phone
	      Use telephone number phone for the newly created user.  This attribute is only sup-
	      ported in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may  have  further  limitations
	      (e.g. LDAP schema rules).

EXIT STATUS
       The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on error.
