useradd [options] LOGIN
-g, --gid GROUP
The group name or number of the user's initial login group. The
group name must exist. A group number must refer to an already
-G, --groups GROUP1[,GROUP2,...[,GROUPN]]]
A list of supplementary groups which the user is also a member of.
Each group is separated from the next by a comma, with no
intervening whitespace. The groups are subject to the same
restrictions as the group given with the -g option. The default is
for the user to belong only to the initial group.
Create the user's home directory if it does not exist. The files
and directories contained in the skeleton directory (which can be
defined with the -k option) will be copied to the home directory.
By default, if this option is not specified and CREATE_HOME is not
enabled, no home directories are created.
You may not add a user to a NIS or LDAP group. This must be performed
on the corresponding server.
Similarly, if the username already exists in an external user database
such as NIS or LDAP, useradd will deny the user account creation
Usernames must start with a lower case letter or an underscore,
followed by lower case letters, digits, underscores, or dashes. They
can end with a dollar sign. In regular expression terms:
Usernames may only be up to 32 characters long.
