I知 getting the below error. Have the options for ipa user-add changed
recently? Here痴 what the error looks like in context from the CLI:

Password for admin@ourdomain:
User login:
ipa: ERROR: Could not get User login interactively

Here is what痴 in the script:

ipa user-add $USER --first=$FIRST --last=$LAST --cn="$FULL"
--displayname="$FULL" --uid=$UUID --gidnumber=$GID --setattr

Are you sure $USER has a value?

It looks like it is falling back on interactive prompting for required

Thanks that gave me a clue. The script was looking for a group ID of 8 characters long I changed it to 4: forline in"$(echo $p | grep "x:[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*:")"# Only grep user accounts with IDs of 4 digits or more

But now the script just “hangs” and no response. I confirmed permissions of the shadow and passwd files and just using 20 login names from each file. Nothing shows up in the user search of the FreeIPA GUI.

Well, I may not be that fluent in bash as I used to be, but from what I see here, it's quite obvious. Line 39 - you have a `while read p` part there that waits for input from stdin. That's where you hang. How you managed to get to `ipa user-add` line before I am not really certain.

Did you perhaps mean to read from /tmp/passwd or /tmp/shadow on L39? :)
