Creating users in Solaris is easy.
First yoou have to make sure you have root rights or belong to the sysadmin group to do this.

Start CDE or OpenWindows

on the root type the following:
# admintool &

this will launch the admintool users window.
Choose Browse then Users
Then choose the EDIT menu and then Add

The following information will be needed:
Username and UID
Primary GID
Secondary GID
Real name as a comment
Login Shell
Password
Home Directory

As for adding a server into an existing DOMAIN the following is information provided by SUN. Also as you can see it reflects Solaris 7 since that is what I am using, so you may want to find the version you are running before proceeding.

Hope this helps...
