Creating and Managing User Accounts

After you have installed the Oracle Solaris OS on your system and connected your installed system to the network, you can start setting up user accounts and user groups on your system. For reference, see Managing User Accounts and User Environments in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

The guide describes concepts and procedures for creating and maintaining user accounts by using the following tools:

  • Command line interfaces (CLIs) such as useradd, usermod, and other user* commands.

  • Interactive tools such as the useradm command in interactive mode or the Oracle Solaris Account Management BUI.
