Check Point Firewall: Adding A User In CLI

Here is a quick "how to" on adding a user in Check Point via command line (CLI).  It just as easy to go into the GUI and do this, but I have found that when I'm in CLI anyway and need to do this, this is a quick template for me. 

add user NewUserName uid 0 homedir /home/NewUserName
set user NewUserName gid 100 shell /etc/
set user NewUserName password
(then you will verify the password you just typed in)
add rba user NewUserName roles adminRole (for adding an administrator)
save config
