Linux - how to centrally manage local accounts on Linux servers?

What is the best way that most of the companies use to manage local user account and password on 50+ linux machines ?

The best was is to use centrally managed users. Manual configuration of many servers can be done with automation such as ansible.

Thank you for the response… Once the user accounts are deployed using ansible, can we restrict the user to create other accounts or force password reset using ansible ?

Anything you can do as root, you can do with ansible.

got it, thanks again al1… I will explore Ansible and see if it fits the requirement, can you kindly share any document/videos of configuring so that I can setup and test quickly…
