Yes, useradd (man useradd command)

Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: Create multiple user account with default users group

You can use useradd.sam with a script to create multiple users with passwords. See this thread:

Funny, I have yet to find a script that will run the passwd command.

Re: Create multiple user account with default users group

other than useradd.sam

and you are using Trusted Passwords
and if you do not need to set the pass to anything specific
and you do not care about userids

then the below would work..(more specifics should get you more details)

cat user.list|while read list
do
useradd -m $list
modprpw -x $list
done

(where user.list is a file with valid user anames, one per line)

Hey;

Having reread that, it sounds snarky; wasn't meant to be - humble apologies.

Searching the forums is still a valid point, though: The first three links of 50 are as follows:
