What, exactly, do you mean by "user directory"? Are you referring to user-profiles? ... or possibly IFS folders?

Quickest and easiest to it from the standard green-screen command-line. (WrkUsrPrf or CrtUsrPrf) But, to my knowledge, you can also accomplish it from IBM's gui-tool System i Navigator.

HTH,

System I Navigator is something I used in the past but could not remember it.

BTW, I recently remembered that you can access user-profile info using SQL.

select *
  from QSYS2.USER_INFO

Is that hard to understand?

The primary IBM i user object is called a "user profile".  These objects correspond pretty closely to other system's user ids or user accounts.  They are not organized in a directory like AD, so we don't call it a "user directory".  

To make matters more confusing there -is- a different "user directory" called the "system directory" or just the "directory" that contains additional user information used by a variety of tools like SNADS, and IBM i based email.  It is managed separately from the user profile.

IBM i provides a hierarchical file system called the IFS (Integrated File System), and users can have "home" directory folders in the IFS: commonly called the "user directory" or "home directory".

Finally, IBM i also provides an LDAP directory which can also contain user information - one example when using EIM for SSO.

So when you say "user directory" without providing any context, is really isn't that clear what you're referring to.
