NAMN

       groupdel - ta bort en grupp

SYNOPSIS

       groupdel grupp

BESKRIVNING

       The groupdel command modifies the system account files, deleting all entries that refer to
       group. The named group must exist.

TÄNK

       Du får inte ta bort den primära gruppen för någon existerande användare. Du måste ta bort
       användaren innan du tar bort gruppen.

       You should manually check all file systems to ensure that no files remain owned by this
       group.

CONFIGURATION

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

       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.

FILER

       /etc/group
           Gruppkontoinformation.

       /etc/gshadow
           Säker gruppkontoinformation.
