For loop to create 9000 users

Hello, I need to figure out how to create a shell
script that iterates 9000 times to create users.

so far i have this:

#!/bin/sh
#Script adds multiple users into the Service manager

i=0

for i in 1 * 9000
do
./insuser /WideSpan/config/vipclient.conf $i $i password 0 Org1 UserGroup1 'A' 1 "" "" root
done

Am I on the right track ?

You can do something like that:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#Script adds multiple users into the Service manager

i=1
while [ $i -le 9000 ]
do
   ./insuser /WideSpan/config/vipclient.conf $i $i password 0 Org1 UserGroup1 'A' 1 "" "" root
   i=`expr $i + 1`
done

   i=`expr $i + 1`
done


Except that, instead of calling an external command 9,000 times, use the shell to do the arithmetic:

Code:
i=$(( $i + 1 ))

All *nix systems within the last 15 years have shells that perform integer arithmetic.
