USERMGMT.CONF(5)		     BSD File Formats Manual			 USERMGMT.CONF(5)

     usermgmt.conf -- user management tools configuration file


     The usermgmt.conf file defines the default values used by the user management tools,
     useradd(8) and friends.

     Options in this file can be set by manually editing /etc/usermgmt.conf or using the -D
     option to useradd(8).

     base_dir	sets the base directory name, in which new users' home directories are created
		when using the -m option to useradd(8).

     class	sets the default login class for new users.  See login.conf(5) for more
		information on user login classes.

     expire	sets the default time at which the current password expires.  This can be used to
		implement password aging.  Both the expire and inactive fields should be entered
		in the form ``month day year'', where month is the month name (the first three
		characters are sufficient), day is the day of the month, and year is the year.
		Time in seconds since the epoch (UTC) is also valid.  A value of 0 can be used to
		disable this feature.

     group	sets the default primary group for new users.  If this is '=uid', then a uid and
		gid will be picked which are both unique and the same, and a line will be added
		to /etc/group to describe the new group.  It has the format:
		      group gid | name | =uid

     homeperm	sets the default permissions of the newly created home directory if -m is given
		to useradd(8).	The permission is specified as an octal number, with or without a
		leading zero.

     inactive	sets the default time at which new accounts expire.  A value of 0 can be used to
		disable this feature.  Also see the expire field.

     password	specifies an already-encrypted default password.

     preserve	If this value is one of 'true', 'yes', or a non-zero number, then the user login
		information will be preserved when removing a user with userdel(8).

     range	specifies the uid boundaries for new users.  If unspecified, the default is
		``1000..60000''.  It has the format:
		      range starting-uid..ending-uid

     gid_range	specifies the gid boundaries for new groups.  If unspecified, the default is
		``1000..60000''.  It has the format:
		      gid_range starting-gid..ending-gid

     shell	sets the default login shell for new users.

     skel_dir	sets the default skeleton directory in which to find files with which to populate
		the new user's home directory.


     login.conf(5), passwd(5), user(8), useradd(8), userdel(8), usermod(8)

     The usermgmt.conf configuration file first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.
