Adding a user to a group?


#1

Hi! I have a user that gets created during the installation of a
vendor-supplied package . . . I need to add this user to a group . . .
anyone know ow to do that? If it makes a difference, this user has a
different UID on each machine it’s installed on :frowning:

Thanks!
Guy

Yep, you can use the group resourcehttp://docs.opscode.com/resource_group.html to take care of this. You just have to make sure that the user is there ahead of this running in the run_list and it can use the members option to make sure it’s where it needs to be.
