Managing User Accounts

Two basic user account operations are routinely used: change of password and querying which groups a user is a member of. The change of password operation is shown in ???.

The ability to query Windows group membership can be essential. Here is how a remote server may be interrogated to find which groups a user is a member of:

root#  net rpc user info jacko -S SAURON -Uroot%not24get
net rpc user info jacko -S SAURON -Uroot%not24get
Domain Users
Domain Admins
BOP Shop
Emergency Services

It is also possible to rename user accounts: oldusername newusername Note that this operation does not yet work against Samba Servers. It is, however, possible to rename useraccounts on Windows Servers.
