Description Jiri Popelka 2011-09-16 15:50:58 UTC
From useradd(8) man page

-o, --non-unique
   This option is only valid in combination with the -o option.

There should be '-u' instead of '-o'.

Invocation of useradd with -o without -u gives correct warning:
useradd: -o flag is only allowed with the -u flag
