su - to root first.. then useradd <options> <username> Unless you are in ubuntu then you would use sudo (sudo useradd <options> <username>)

And when I say 'su -' I mean exactly that, use the hypen when you su otherwise you will not get roots environment and it will be unable to find simple commands such as useradd


you should put your distro in your profile, it would be easier to give specific help if we know what you are running

if you're already root and useradd still doesn't work run:

# find -type f /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin | grep useradd'

If you see useradd, perhaps the directory containing the file is not included in the PATH variable. Just run the command using its absolute path. for example:

# /bin/useradd
# /bin/useradd --help
