       and groups

SYNOPSIS         top

       systemd-sysusers [OPTIONS...] [CONFIGFILE...]

       systemd-sysusers.service

DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-sysusers creates system users and groups, based on the file
       format and location specified in sysusers.d(5).

       If invoked with no arguments, it applies all directives from all
       files found. If one or more filenames are passed on the command line,
       only the directives in these files are applied. If only the basename
       of a file is specified, all directories as specified in sysusers.d(5)
       are searched for a matching file. If the string - is specified as
       filename, entries from the standard input of the process are read.

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are understood:

       --root=root
           Takes a directory path as an argument. All paths will be prefixed
           with the given alternate root path, including config search
           paths.

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

       --version
           Print a short version string and exit.
