hi gaurav,

Here the script

for I in $ (seq 113001 113050)
do
useradd $I
echo password | passwd --stdin $I
chage -d 0 $I

             when i run this script i am getting invalid user name,but if i am doing like this i can create

for I in $@
do
useradd $I
echo password | passwd --stdin $I
chage -d 0 $I
 
            if i run this script (i.e) bash users ram tony ...........  i can create user accounts
              I want to create a user account in numbers i.e 113001, 113002 ...........  


I am waiting for your Reply.

Thanks in Advance,
Purushothaman.

Why not u try to debug the script using -x option while running ur shell script?

i.e.:

root@localhost# bash -x /path/to/your-script

i assume ur using bash shell scripting. If it's not sorry, u can ignore what i shared with you here.

Do one  thing enclose your numbers i.e 113001 with single quotes, so that it behaves like chracter string .........

I haven't tried this as I dont have the Linux/Solaris PC having root privalages, but just give a try
