SYNOPSIS

 task "create-user", "remoteserver", sub {
   create_user "root",
     uid         => 0,
     home        => '/root',
     comment     => 'Root Account',
     expire      => '2011-05-30',
     groups      => [ 'root', '...' ],
     password    => 'blahblah',
     system      => 1,
     create_home => TRUE,
     shell       => '/bin/bash',
     ssh_key     => "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQChUw...";
 };

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

account($name, %option)

Manage user account.

 account "krimdomu",
   ensure         => "present",  # default
   uid            => 509,
   home           => '/root',
   comment        => 'User Account',
   expire         => '2011-05-30',
   groups         => [ 'root', '...' ],
   login_class    => 'staff',   # on OpenBSD
   password       => 'blahblah',
   crypt_password => '*', # on Linux, OpenBSD and NetBSD
   system         => 1,
   create_home    => TRUE,
   shell          => '/bin/bash',
   ssh_key        => "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQChUw...";

There is also a no_create_home option similar to create_home but doing the opposite. If both used, create_home takes precedence as it the preferred option to specify home directory creation policy.

If none of them are specified, Rex follows the remote system's home creation policy.

The crypt_password option specifies the encrypted value as found in /etc/shadow; on Linux special values are '*' and '!' which mean 'disabled password' and 'disabled login' respectively.

create_user($user => {})
