Basics – nsraddadmin

A simple and straight-forward command, nsraddadmin answers that problem of needing to quickly add a user account as a NetWorker administration without having to fire up either NMC or nsradmin.

The command only takes a single argument sequence:

# nsraddadmin -u entry

Where ‘entry’ is a valid NetWorker user entry, i.e., one of:

  • user@host


  • user=name,host=name

For example, on the NetWorker server as a current administrator, if you wanted to add “preston” on the machine “faero” as an administrator, you’d simply run:

# nsraddadmin -u "user=preston,host=faero"

or, using the old format:

# nsraddadmin -u preston@faero
