SUSE CSA Certification: useradd

SLES 12 Objective:  Managing Users & Groups

For the Certified SUSE Administrator exam, be sure you know how to use ‘useradd‘ beyond just the simple adding a user.


Challenge:  Create a user that also belongs to the ‘wheel’ group, uses the /bin/sh shell, and can login with a password of ‘pink-melody!’.  Be sure the password is stored in the /etc/shadow file with an sha-512 hash.

BONUS Challenge:  Complete the challenge by writing a single command to create the user (i.e., only hit enter once).
