It is not uncommon for a Red Hat Linux system to be used as a single-task server with no actual users. It sits quietly in a server room, serving Web pages or handling domain name service, never crashing, and rarely needing attention. This is not always the case, however. You may have to support users on your Red Hat Linux server, and that can be the most challenging part of your system administration duties.
Red Hat Linux provides a variety of tools that help you with your administrative chores. The useradd, usermod, and userdel commands enable easy command-line manipulation of user account data. Furthermore, creating a support mailbox and building shell scripts to automate repetitive tasks lightens your load even more. Red Hat Linux builds on top of the rich history of UNIX and provides an ideal platform to support the diverse needs of your users.
