Permission denied to create user

I am trying to create a user with non-interactive shell. I tried both the commands but it gives me Permission Denied.

  • useradd -s /bin/false yousuf
  • useradd -s /sbin/nologin yousuf

Are you trying on one of the App Servers as asked in the question? If possible please share the screenshot.

were you root ? or did you use sudo ?
