User Manager

User Manager is a supplement to the "Accounts" pane in the Mac OS X System Preferences, designed for use with small home networks. User Manager is targeted at power users who desire full control over user and group attributes, without the need to resort to using the NetInfo Manager. With it, you can create, edit, or delete users and groups in any Open Directory node (e.g. a NetInfo domain). The interface allows you to edit nearly all record attributes, including UID, GID, login shell, and home directory. You can also manage Unix group memberships using the drag-and-drop user and group-centric interfaces.
