Users and Groups
Some, though not all, of the tips here are for setting up users and groups.
The tool of choice is smbldap.
- To create a new user(s)
Root has a script in bin/creasu.sh, so as root:
sh bin/creasu.sh <user> <user1> <user2>
will create groups, accounts, home folder and all relevant files into the new home folder. Then you need to setup passwords with:
for each of the users.
Then setup an ssh key for logging into the nodes.
Then, as root user, login a user via
su - <newuserid>
and just accept all the suggestions.
.ssh/id_rsa and .ssh/id_rsa.pub, then get created.
cp .ssh/id_rsa.pub .ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys
then ssh node1 should log in to node1 without password (no need to test other nodes).
- To create a new group
smbldap-groupadd -a <newgrpname>
- To add users to a certain group (note that this seems to take some time to propagate, as well as only working on fresh logins)
smbldap-groupmod -m <list,of,users> <targetgroup>
