Add user

Add the user on util_serv

ssh util_serv
# user's primary group is reichman
/usr/sbin/useradd -d /home/Reichman/UNAME -M -e 20121231 -g reichman -c "First Last" UNAME
groups UNAME
# remember the uid
grep UNAME /etc/passwd
cd /var/yp/ && make

Copy the skeleton files from one of the iris nodes

ssh iris001
##rm -r /home/Reichman/UNAME
cp -r /etc/skel/ /home/Reichman/UNAME
ls -a /home/Reichman/UNAME/
chown UNAME:reichman --recursive /home/Reichman/UNAME/

Set the password (util_serv again)

ssh util_serv
passwd UNAME
cd /var/yp && make
