User Addition

Hi Experts

 

I am facing an issue while adding an user:

 

abcd:/#useradd -u 61161 -o orads3
Login 'orads3' not unique

 

I had check the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, I am wondering how to proceeed

avggsujh:/#ps -ef|grep ldap
    root  1041     1  0  Aug  2  ?         1:34 /opt/ldapux/bin/ldapclientd
    root 16909 14824  0 13:31:25 pts/2     0:00 grep ldap

 

avggsujh:/#ypwhich -m
ypwhich:  the NIS domain name hasn't been set on this machine

 

All answer are appreciated

And you don't have either UID 61161 or 'orads3' in /etc/passwd?

Please check if user orads3 is already available in /etc/passwd or else try with different uid.
