Compatibility with the NFS protocol. A google search on "nfs 16 groups" returned a lot of hits. http://www.sunmanagers.org/archives/1998/1328.html http://nfsworld.blogspot.com/2005/03/whats-deal-on-16-group-id-limitation.html You can raise the limit, but you need to make sure that you raise it on all servers that share NFS mounts. If you don't you may end up with remote file access either failing or not passing the full group membership list to the remote server, which could cause incorrect "permission denied" errors. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
