The Mac server account creation, permissions setting, and password generation tool
Got Users? Lots of them? Get them into your server the Mac way!

If you are system administrator handling hundreds or thousands of users, you realize that manually creating all the users and setting all the file sharing permissions for all your users is time-consuming without a tool to help. The Mac, not the administrator, is the machine.

With Mac OS X Server 10.2 and above, all account information must be in a specific delimited format with descriptive headers before it can be imported. Although making the files in the right format is not particularly hard, Passenger gives the ability to use pieces of imported data to form user and group specific data, concatenate names, short names, and passwords.

Software Information System Requirements
  • Power PC with G4 processor or greater
  • Mac OS X Server 10.2 - 10.4 and above

What Passenger does:
  1. Import Database Text
    Passenger takes comma, colon, or tab-delimited text, basic LDF, Mac OS X Server & ASIP XML, or forlder names of a user directory and imports names and other information to prepare for import into a server or other user file management functions.
  2. Name Concatenation
    You can import first, last, middle, and/or full name fields and use the menus to devise a formulation for names/usernames, short names and repeating digit usernames using an arsenal of replacement tags from various imported data fields.
  3. Generate Passwords
    Password generation is done by a tough algorithm that takes a combination of the master password and the username. Passwords created this way can be regenerated with the same master password and username. Formulation is extremely configurable and with presets for styles such as word-word or word number combination for security and easy memorization.
  4. Duplicate Checking
    Duplicate checking is performed on Names/Usernames and short names against other imported users and against those already on the server and including multiple short names.
  5. Set Account Parameters
    It allows you to setup parameters for several servers or create your own parameters using the custom text setup which you can then save as presets for later use.
  6. Export for Servers & Eudora Clients
    Exports for Mac OS X Server, Macintosh Manager, Eudora client settings customization and distribution, WebSTAR FTP, WebSTAR Web, Master Spell, Master Key, and user-defined customized export.
  7. Create Folders
    Using the either name or short names you may generate folders with those names including nesting user folders in group folders. You may even include to put folder names of your choice within these folders such as "Documents" and "Preferences" for Macintosh Manager.
  8. Migrate Account Folders
    Move documents and preferences from one set of account folders to another. Even if their names changed (such as to short names), it is possible to move files to their new home. And once you get them there...
  9. Set Permissions
    Set file-level permissions in batch for Mac OS X home directories as any user, locally or remotely. Even save those sets as shell scripts so you can add them to your system crontab.
