How to add a new user

All this is now done by atlas_adduser.pl 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/atlas_adduser.pl 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)

e.g.

./atlas_adduser.pl add --user=foo.bar --fullname='BAR, Foo --institution='Unseen university' \
--certificate='/C=Turtle/O=Unseen/OU=University/CN=Foo Bar' --email=foo.bar@unseen.uni \
--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)
