useradd fails when creating users with capitals in username
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
When creating a user via 'useradd', you cannot create a user with an uppercase
letter. 'useradd' fails with "useradd: invalid user name <username>" For
instance, this fails for my attempt at using a username with mixed alpha and
numeric characters (A012345).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
run 'useradd' with a username that has a capital letter
Steps to Reproduce:
Fails with message "useradd: invalid user name <username>"
Create user account
