can not add user with useradd ?
Posted on 2009-07-13
I am getting below error message on one of the Prod box ( solaris 10 )
# useradd -u 61403 -g users -d /home/mtouch -c "VP user account (Lev1)" -m -s /bin/bash mtouch
UX: useradd: ERROR: mtouch is already in use. Choose another.
The weird thing happening here is the user account is not created on the box, I searched the user
in passwd file the user is not there. Next I thought that the group might not be present thats why this
error But the group is there in the /etc/group file.
Please help me to find out the reason behind this,
Thanks in Advance.
