to who ever,
I am trying to add a secondary group to some users on an HP9000 10.01.
Would anyone know the command to do this -- outside of SAM.
thanx in advance,
Uhhh, I think you just want to edit /etc/group, and add the users to the group
that way (you just tack a comma-separated list of users onto the end of the line
that contains whatever group you're trying to add them to). It's pretty simple,
and I think it beats the *out of sam, but I'm prejudiced against anything that
trys to wrap a simple task like EDITING ONE FILE or ISSUING A SHORT COMMAND-LINE
COMMAND in some overblown, screen-oriented sysadmin interface.

Use vi? That's the way I change the groups -- edit /etc/group manaully. I
don't know of any tool that is designed to do this.

Make sure to do this:
# cd /etc
# ln -s group logingroup
so that the users will not have to newgrp to get into their new groups.
