Group without access to /etc/groups

Group without access to /etc/groups

Post by Kenneth P. Turv » Wed, 21 Jan 1998 04:00:00

I have a need to allow 3 users read and write access to a directory and
files within that directory without having access to the /etc/groups
file on the system.

Is there anyway to emulate a small group using hard and soft links that
will work well for this kind of application?

Is there a way to do something like the following:


That is, I'd like to be able to create a file
owned by "staff+student".  Then users in the "staff"
group or in the "student" group could access the
file.  But users in "guest" could not access the file.
