CONFIGURATION

       The following configuration variable in /etc/login.defs changes the
       behavior of grpconv and grpunconv:

       MAX_MEMBERS_PER_GROUP (number)
           Maximum members per group entry. When the maximum is reached, a new
           group entry (line) is started in /etc/group (with the same name,
           same password, and same GID).

           The default value is 0, meaning that there are no limits in the
           number of members in a group.

           This feature (split group) permits to limit the length of lines in
           the group file. This is useful to make sure that lines for NIS
           groups are not larger than 1024 characters.

           If you need to enforce such limit, you can use 25.

           Note: split groups may not be supported by all tools (even in the
           Shadow toolsuite). You should not use this variable unless you
           really need it.

       The following configuration variables in /etc/login.defs change the
       behavior of pwconv:

       PASS_MAX_DAYS (number)
               .     ,      .    ,    -1 (     ).

       PASS_MIN_DAYS (number)
                .         .    ,    -1 (     ).

       PASS_WARN_AGE (number)
                    .   ,      ,       .    ,   .

       /etc/login.defs

       grpck(8), login.defs(5), pwck(8).
