I can do it tanks

You need to do it

if you want to modify user is already in the system you do the next

chmod -l "newuser" "olduser"
passwd "newuser"

cd /etc/ssh
vi sshd_config -> modify the user, add newuser

restart the service

svcs | grep ssh
svcadm restart svc:/network.ssh.default

best regards.

If you have the previous administrator's root password, why not do a "passwd" to change the password then? Isn't it easier? why would you need/like to have 2 root accounts?

I was need it, because tha past administrador had a acount with his name so I was need change for my name or my id and I didnīt know user group, you know how can I search the group for an user?. or how can you add new user in the system?

The only way I know of looking up groups is using the admintool. So try to look for it, and then you can search the group you want.

Another way to display which groups a user belongs to is using the logins command:
/usr/bin/logins -m

Yesterday I reinstalled my Gentoo and I did something what may help you
useradd -d /export/home/yourname -m -d /bin/tcsh -g root name

now you simply create password using passwd command

passwd name

and that is that you have new user with root restrictions but is better to modify

/etc/shadow to remove root password and to create a new one Smilie

root@admin # useradd -d /export/home/z7895214 -m -d /bin/tcsh -g root z6541236
UX: useradd: z6541236 name too long.
UX: useradd: WARNING: z6541236 has no permissions to use /bin/tcsh.
