You can use the Accounts for Users and Groups tool to do the following:

  • Manage local user accounts, NIS user accounts and groups, and user accounts and groups on LDAP server on an HP-UX system.
  • Add, modify, disable, and delete user accounts on the local system.
  • Modify password, secondary groups, and security attributes of user accounts on the local system.
  • Manage user templates and customize tasks.
  • Add, modify, disable, and delete user accounts on the NIS system.
  • Add, modify, and delete user accounts on the LDAP server.
  • Modify password, secondary groups, and security attributes of user accounts on the NIS system. You can also update NIS maps.
