Linux : User Information & Management

In this post, I’m going to give some list of Linux commands, which is very useful to get user information and management.

#Shows the user and group ids of current user


#Shows the last users who have logged onto the system


#Shows who is logged into the system


#Shows who is logged in and what they are doing


#Create a group named as “acTest”

groupadd acTest

#Create an account named as acUser, with a comment of “Advance Computing” and create the user’s home directory

useradd -c “Advance Computing” -m acUser

#Delete the acUser account

userdel acUser

#Add the acUser account to the develoment group

usermod -aG development acUser
