The group file consists of one or more lines containing four colon-separated fields, as shown in the following example:
The fields are defined below in the order in which they appear in the file.
- Group name
- The name of the group. This field is case-sensitive. Although OneFS does not limit the length of the group name, many applications truncate the name to 16 characters.
- This field is not supported by OneFS and should contain an asterisk (*).
- The UNIX group identifier. Valid values are any number in the range 0- 4294967294 that is not reserved or already assigned to a group. Compatibility issues occur if this value conflicts with an existing group's GID.
- Group members
- A comma-delimited list of user names.
