You could use a for loop to cycle through the IP addresses, and do a 'adduser' on each of the machines.

OR you could set up a centralized auth server... OR you can set up an automation server like puppet or Chef to push out identical passwd/shadow/group files...

Here is FreeIPA for central auth. http://www.freeipa.org/page/About

And here is some info on a for loop for ip's: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...re-on-in-my-la

And here is some chef info on user management: https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks/users
