How to add a new user

All this is now done by from our git repo!

The remaining stuff here is done for the fictitious user foo BAR, and left as an old reference.

Add user on cfengine

run the script /root/bin/ with the correct options (try --help for getting some idea what is needed)

all else should be handled automagically for you (file system creation, user notification)


./ add --fullname='BAR, Foo --institution='Unseen university' \
--certificate='/C=Turtle/O=Unseen/OU=University/CN=Foo Bar' \
--lsc --verbose --shell=bash --server=hsm2 --filesystem=samqfs/C3

This will create the relevant changes in our cfengine setup and also create file systems accordingly (also shares NFS)
