About the useradm Application

The useradm tool can be used as a command line or interactively. This section focuses on the interactive mode of that tool.

The interative useradm application replaces the Visual Panels User Manager. This application is a remote administration daemon (RAD) client which provides a menu-driven interface for setting up and managing user accounts. Though the application connects to local RAD servers by default, it can connect to remote RAD servers too. The application provides easier user management, password management, and role management options. Any terminal emulator like putty or the Secure Shell (ssh) service can be used to start this application locally or remotely.

Whether in command line mode or interactive mode, use of useradm requires that you must be an administrator or assume a role which has been assigned the User Security rights profile. See Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

For more details about the useradm command, see the useradm(8) man page.
