Tips for managing Linux user accounts

Linux systems administrators have many tasks on their plate. One such task is user administration, which can range from creating users, modifying users, locking users out of their accounts, and deleting users. Along the way, Linux systems admins will also find themselves having to troubleshoot user accounts when problems arise. Without the necessary skills to take on these tasks, a Linux systems admin will have a hard time keeping up with user requests.

TechRepublic Premium is here to give you a helping hand. We’ll walk you through the process of creating a user account, all the way to deleting that account. Everything you do here will be handled via the Command Line Interface (CLI). With the accompanying checklist in hand, Linux systems admins shouldn’t have any trouble taking care of the entire gamut of tasks associated with user management.
