When I try to add user, the machine gets struct and its not completing the process. Can any one help me what will the problem. I guess my server has reached its maximum number of users. Will you please let me know how many users we can add?
I used useradd command to add the user and also I tried to add the user through GUI mode. Its not updated in /etc/passwd file. When I give that command or when I use it through GUI, its doing nothing. simply it was keep on processing.
I am using RedHat Linux 3.0. I used the command "useradd <username>". With this command, I didnt got any error messages,but my server is still processing the same. I did this as a super user. I noticed that there is an entry in /etc/passwd now and while I am trying to check the home directory for the particular users directory its taking a lot of time to display for that also. Any helps will be appreciated.
