NAME
       lusermod - Modify an user

SYNOPSIS
       lusermod [OPTION]... user

DESCRIPTION
       Modifies the user with name user.

OPTIONS
       -c, --gecos=gecos
	      Set  user's  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.

       -g, --gid=gid
	      Change user's primary group ID to gid.  If group with ID	gid  does  not	exist,	a
	      warning is printed, but the operation is performed anyway.

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

       -L, --lock
	      Lock user's account.  This prevents logging in using user's password.

       -l, --login=name
	      Rename user to name.

       -m, --movedirectory
	      After changing user's home directory (using the  -d  option),  move  the	old  home
	      directory to the new location.

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

       -s, --shell=shell
	      Set user's login shell to shell.

       -U, --unlock
	      Unlock user's account.

       -u, --uid=uid
	      Change user's user ID to uid.

       --commonname=name
	      Set  user's common name to name.	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
	      Set user's given name to name.  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
	      Set  user's  home  telephone  number to phone.  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
	      Set  user's room number to room.	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
	      Set user's surname to name.  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
	      Set  user's  telephone  number  to phone.  This attribute is only supported in some
	      backends (e.g.LDAP), and its support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema
	      rules).
