Error creating user: useradd: unable to open password fileLast Modified: Oct 7, 2008, 11:47 pm
When you create a User, if you get the error:

Error creating user: useradd: unable to open password file

that may mean that your /etc/passwd file is not set properly for access.  You can try the command:

chattr -ai /etc/passwd

to set it correctly.
