Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately /usr/bin/getent on my system doesn't seem
to like the netgroup option:
-bash-3.2# getent netgroup test1
Unknown database: netgroup
usage: getent database [ key ... ]
-bash-3.2# uname -a
SunOS vdcudantest01 5.10 Generic_147440-27 sun4v sparc
-bash-3.2# cat /etc/release
Solaris 10 10/09 s10s_u8wos_08a SPARC
