. Also take a look at the man pages for the "newusers" command. That should give you a pretty good understanding of the process. You will undoubtedly need to modify your user text file from exchange to be similar to the /etc/passwd file. Without seeing a sample of this text file I can't advise on how this could be done. But you have an example of the layout by looking at your /etc/passwd file. The /etc/passwd file shows you what the newusers command expects. Linux provides tools like "sed", "awk", "cut" that help automate modifying your exchange text file.
