First, you need to create a 'storage' group (if it doesn't already exist). Then you add ids to it. Both can be done by editing the file /etc/group When you create the group, pick a unique id number above those used by the system. Make the rest of the entry look like the others. Then add the ids in a comma separated list at the end. There may be a maximum of ids you can add to any group, but I don't know what it is. There are also various utilities that will do this for you, but it is so easy just to edit /etc/group that I never bother with them. ////jerry > > Thanks > > Andrew > _________________________________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
