sss_seed — seed the SSSD cache with a user


sss_seed [options] -D DOMAIN -n USER


sss_seed seeds the SSSD cache with a user entry and temporary password. If a user entry is already present in the SSSD cache then the entry is updated with the temporary password.


-D,--domain DOMAIN
Provide the name of the domain in which the user is a member of. The domain is also used to retrieve user information. The domain must be configured in sssd.conf. The DOMAIN option must be provided. Information retrieved from the domain overrides what is provided in the options.
-n,--username USER
The username of the entry to be created or modified in the cache. The USER option must be provided.
-u,--uid UID
Set the UID of the user to UID.
-g,--gid GID
Set the GID of the user to GID.
-c,--gecos COMMENT
Any text string describing the user. Often used as the field for the user's full name.
-h,--home HOME_DIR
Set the home directory of the user to HOME_DIR.
-s,--shell SHELL
Set the login shell of the user to SHELL.
Interactive mode for entering user information. This option will only prompt for information not provided in the options or retrieved from the domain.
-p,--password-file PASS_FILE
Specify file to read user's password from. (if not specified password is prompted for)
Display help message and exit.


The length of the password (or the size of file specified with -p or --password-file option) must be less than or equal to PASS_MAX bytes (64 bytes on systems with no globally-defined PASS_MAX value).
