NAME
       lusermod - Modify an user


SYNOPSIS
       lusermod [OPTION]... user


DESCRIPTION
       Modifies the user with name user.


OPTIONS
       -c, --gecos=gecos
              Set  user's  GECOS  field to gecos.  The GECOS field is traditionally used to store user's real name and
              other information.


       -d, --directory=directory
              Set user's home directory to directory.


       -g, --gid=gid
              Change user's primary group ID to gid.  If group with ID gid does not exist, a warning is  printed,  but
              the operation is performed anyway.


       -i, --interactive
              Ask  all  questions  when connecting to the user database, even if default answers are set up in libuser
              configuration.


       -L, --lock
              Lock user's account.  This prevents logging in using user's password.


       -l, --login=name
              Rename user to name.


       -m, --movedirectory
              After changing user's home directory (using the -d option), move the old home directory to the new loca-
              tion.


       -P, --plainpassword=password
              Set  user's  password  to  password.   Note that the password can be viewed while running lusermod using
              tools such as ps(1).


       -p, --password=encrypted
              Set user's password to the password represented by the hash encrypted.  Note that the hash can be viewed
              while running lusermod using tools such as ps(1).


       -s, --shell=shell
              Set user's login shell to shell.


       -U, --unlock
              Unlock user's account.


       -u, --uid=uid
              Change user's user ID to uid.


       --commonname=name
              Set  user's  common name to name.  This attribute is only supported in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its
              support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).


       --givenname=name
              Set user's given name to name.  This attribute is only supported in some backends  (e.g.LDAP),  and  its
              support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).


       --homephone=phone
              Set  user's  home  telephone  number  to  phone.   This  attribute  is  only  supported in some backends
              (e.g.LDAP), and its support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).


       --roomnumber=room
              Set user's room number to room.  This attribute is only supported in some backends (e.g.LDAP),  and  its
              support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).


       --surname=name
              Set  user's surname to name.  This attribute is only supported in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and its sup-
              port may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).


       --telephonenumber=phone
              Set user's telephone number to phone.  This attribute is only supported in some backends (e.g.LDAP), and
              its support may have further limitations (e.g. LDAP schema rules).

       The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on error.
