RHEL User Management Script

Does someone has a User Management script on RHEL, Which will create/delete, unlock, reset and set expiration date, a menu option is very much preferred. So can someone help.

If the user already exists, It should prompt that user also exist.

If you're talking about just the basic linux tools.  Redhat has the documentation on their site.

There's the Redhat User Manager GUI too, but I've never used that.

I've only used the command line tools that are available on any standard linux/unix system.

Otherwise, as things get more complex with more users, most admins would move on to a directory server as Daniel has mentioned.  It doesn't make sense to reinvent the wheel.

I have none, and I would think not many have one because if you have many users to manage everyone will use a directory server of a kind (ldap, active directory, NIS...).

But of curse this is might not be helpful. If you provide a use case and the specs of your distro I think I or someone else can come up with something.

useradd/usermod/userdel should fulfill your request (count the help text on wrong parameters as menu items if you like)
