set_zone_user_field command to set the value for a specified field in the currently selected zone user stored in memory. The
set_zone_user_field command does not set a field value stored in Active Directory for this zone user.
If you use ADEdit to change any field, you must save the zone user using the save_zone_user command for your changes to take effect in Active Directory. If you select another zone user or end the ADEdit session before saving the currently selected zone user, your changes will be lost.

- get_zone_users returns a Tcl list of the Active Directory names of all zone users in the current zone.
- list_zone_users lists to
stdoutthe zone users and their NSS data in the current zone.
- new_zone_user creates a new zone user and stores it in memory.
