user_agentd - user agent daemon
Available only on Sun 386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
earlier. Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.
rpc.user_agentd is the remote service used by snap(1) to create, move,
or delete home directories, and by the New User Accounts feature of
logintool(8) to create new home directories. The user_agent daemon is
normally invoked by inetd(8C), and runs on all non-diskless systems.
When creating a new home directory, the user_agent daemon executes the
copy_home(8) script which resides in the home directory of the primary
group to which a new user will be added.
