hi there
i am trying to create user in solaris 10 but i cant find GUI tool to create
like in solaris 9 i seen administrative tool but in solaris 10 i cant find the option to create in GUI mode

through note  i know so far is
firs i need to create a group then a user in that group

command is
groupadd -g 200 accounting
where -g means groupid which is  200( why 200 ?)
then  i being told is
0-60000  for groups
0-99 - reserved for OS
100-60000 -can be used to create groups

can any one explain me clear what that number are . and they really important .

if possible compare with window users . it will give me a good idea.
and the excat commands so that i use same for rest of the time

thanks very much

In Solaris 10, you can use Solaris Management Console (GUI):

/usr/sadm/bin/smc &

to add user or group, or perform other task,

Please read the Sun doc:
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817-1985/6mhm8o5lc?a=view

the Full doc:
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817-1985

other Solaris 10 docs: (you can download thr PDF files)
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/coll/47.16

>>where -g means groupid which is  200( why 200 ?)

the syntax for groupadd is:
/usr/sbin/groupadd [-g gid [-o]] group
man groupadd to learn more details

200 is the GID, you need you have a look at /etc/group file to make sure 200 is available for you.

you can also do:
groupadd accounting

the system will automatically give you a valid group id.

what is the procedure now

do i need to create user first or do i need to create group

are these same to compare with windows
like we create user1,2,3,4,5 ----  and give profile (sales)

in windows to my knowledge (sales) is a profile which is assigned to user1 2 3 4 ---
if iam rong correct me

in the same way in solaris 10 do i need to create group(sales)
and then assign user to that group

what if i create every user1 in a new group
u1-g1
u2-g2
and go on

or do i need to make my mind to create group first and then assign into the users

can you please explain. in briefly

You need to create the group, before you can add newer users to that group, does it make sense to you?
