Operating Systems Solaris make issue when I add some members into a NIS group on solaris 9,please help !! Post 302095823 by RTM on Friday 10th of November 2006 10:22:18 AM

Do all these bej00xxx accounts belong to develop group in the passwd file? If so, then they don't need to be listed in the group file.

grep bej00189 passwd
bej00189:2f3wdfsd93r:5001:200:develop account 189:/home/develop:/bin/ksh

So if bej00189's group is 200, which is equal to develop, then don't put that account into the group file under develop.
