I am running Solaris 2.5.1 and running into the following problem.
I have a group (let's call it 'thegroup') defined in the /etc/group file
that has 525 users in them. The size of this line is 4114 characters.
Most of the users have 'thegroup' as their secondary group. When they
run the groups command, the output does not show 'thegroup' in it. This
has been causing us some problems and I was wondering if anybody had
come across such limit.
I was looking up some details on whether I can include groups in a group
a_group: tom,*, harry
There is one place where the on-line help clearly states that this is
possible. This is in admintool, create new group and selecting the help
from there. The man page on 'group' does not say that. NIS is not an
option to us on this machine.
Thanks in advance!
