usaupdate - update Unix::Sysadmin data files from Canonical Master


C<usaupdate [ --quiet --verbose ]>


usaupdate updates the Unix::Sysadmin databases for users, groups and autmount entries. New entries are added to their respective databases. Old entries are updated with changed information see the Unix::Sysadmin::List manpage for more information.


usabackup takes two optional switches.

By default, usupdate announces itself on stdout when it starts. It also prints status messages as it works. If this switch is given, usaupdate will produce no output other than fatal errors. Overrides the --verbose switch.

If --quiet is not given, --verbose turns on verbose output of all commands issued by the framework.
