ssh and adding users in multiple users

In our environment i have to ssh to each an every servers
ssh <hostname> then which prompts for password for every login
i have to create a user name on 30 severs manually it takes much time so need a script to do this task i have googled and found some for loop scripts but it did not fullfill the requirement.
First i have to check whether the users exists and not and later add the user or reset the password for user using script

You want to use something more like LDAP to distribute the login names, and very likely use a file server for a centralized backup.

That way you only have to update the central database... (you will want a replicated LDAP server though, just in case the main server is offline for some reason).
