Cool useradd xxx


I can't create any new users accounts from command line using the "useradd" command. I'm logged in as the root administrator. Why?

The error message is "bash: useradd: command not found"

typed after # "useradd xxx"

The answer to your question is that you didn't type the right command, or the right options to the right command. But we'll never know until you show us what you typed.
